ATREE and Biome, along with Janaagraha are working on a project to better understand the problems at Bangalore lakes. The objective is to create a systems maps that identify the visible problems at the lakes and narrow down on the causes for each of the problems. Based on the information collected Janaagraha will create a public report which will provide policy recommendations to government bodies. The figure below shows the general procedure that will be followed for the project.
Attached below are the pdfs to the systems map drafts we have created for each visible problem we have identified. After meeting with various experts and verifying the data, we will publish the final version of the systems maps.
