It is not a big surprise when we hear about the dire state our rivers are in. This extends to each and every creek, stream, and waterbody that exists, not just the major ones like the Ganga or Godavari. On the local level as well, we see how ingrained the problem is. Plastic waste, fecal matter, effluents, and industrial excesses all play a big part in damaging these rivers which were once a lifeline of the places it went through. The Nagpur Sister City Workshop was a 2-day event focused on urban river rejuvenation in Nagpur, Maharashtra. It aims to address the challenges faced by urban rivers, particularly the Nag River, such as pollution and lack of citizen participation. The workshop brought together stakeholders from academia, communities, and government to create awareness, build a knowledge database, and foster collaboration. The outcome is to provide clarity of thought, resources, and capacity building for the rejuvenation of Nagpur rivers. The project included panel discussions, stakeholder meetings and collaboration with the Municipal Commissioner of Nagpur.
