Bhoj Wetland: Experience and Lessons Learned Brief (Lake Basin Management Initiative). 2005. (613 KB)

South Asia, home to over one-fifth of the world’s is facing a growing water crisis. This region is in the grip of continuing flood and drought cycles, dictating the need for a long-term strategy for management of its water resources. Big and small water bodies, in the form of lakes and reservoirs, dot the landscape of South Asia. These ecosystems impound precious freshwater, and are the most easily-accessible source for human use. ... Because of the ecological, economical and recreational potential of lakes, there is an urgent need to protect, rehabilitate and conserve them as precious natural resources. This brief examines how these issues have been addressed for the Upper and Lower Lakes of Bhopal, collectively know as the Bhoj Wetland (Figure 1).
