Constructing an ecosan toilet -- A film from UNICEF
 
03:11
Ecological Sanitation is an important new approach to sanitation, which is truly sustainable. It uses almost no water in its operation, and human waste products are used as fertilizer. So three major objectives are achieved: -- saving on water, a critically scarce resource -- non-pollution of the environment by human waste, a major cause of disease and loss of human life -- 'closing the nutrient cycle' : the nutrients (primarily Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, and carbon matter) in our excreta goes back into the soil for re-use by plants. Instead of a one-way process where chemicals are mined and used for each crop produced, the same chemicals are returned to the soil for reuse. This movie was created by UNICEF

Simple steps to achieve water sufficiency - Constructing a recharge well
 
02:37
Rainwater harvesting is mainly done for two reasons - one, to store the water for later use, and two, to recharge the ground. One of the simplest methods of harvesting rainwater is to divert the rain that falls on the terrace into open wells. In the absence of an open well, a percolation/recharge well could be dug within the premises to inject rooftop water into it for groundwater recharge. A recharge well usually is around 10 - 15 feet deep. The depth of these baby wells usually depend upon the nature of the soil underneath and the volume of water the recharge well is expected to recieve during heavy downpours. The downtake pipe carrying rainwater from the rooftop is connected to these recharge wells. Care should be taken to not fill it up with debris or gravel. These wells should be left unfilled and covered with concrete slabs of suitable thickness to aid in vehicular movement inside the building.

"Err- bane" Truth - Dharmambudhi Tank
 
09:59
"The Lost Lakes of Bangalore" is a project to document Bengaluru's many tanks and lakes which have vanished with unplanned urbanization and growth. This is the winning video of the contest in the "General" category In "Err-bane truth" ( a pun on our 'urbane' follies) Nishant Ratnakar and Badekkila Pradeep take on possibly the most strikinge of Bangalore's lost lakes - Dharmambudhi tank which is now the site of the Majestic Bus Station. Starting off on an imaginative note, the movie then traces the history of Dharmambudhi tank and the factors that lead to its demise in the mid-century. Dharmambudi Tank was built by Kempegowda, the chieftain who founded Bengaluru. A Hoysala dynasty inscription dating back to 1247AD mentions about Dodda kere. There are indications that Dodda kere was indeed Dharmambudhi Tank. Dharmambudhi Tank was so huge it spread its wings from Gandhinagar to Subedarchatram. Drawing on the knowledge of experts the movie explores more broadly the role of urban lakes, paints an ominous picture of the future and offers a ray of hope through the restoration work done in Seoul. For its overall coverage of the topic, research and high technical quality, India Water Portal is pleased to award the first prize in the General category of Rs 15,000/- to "Err-bane Truth" by Nishant Ratnakar and Badekkila Pradeep.

Chandil Cage Project-A Jharkhand government initiative
 
07:50
The struggle for leading a decent standard of life still continues with people affected by Chandil dam. Some of the displaced people affected by Chandil dam have started adopting fishing as a way of their livelihood. The Chandil dam reservoir, located 30 kms from Jamshedpur is one of the dams on the Subernarekha river in Jharkhand. The construction of this dam has resulted in the displacement of more than 20,000 families from 116 villages. In 2007, the Jharkhand government initiated the cage fish farming project on a pilot basis. The National Mission for Protein Supplement Scheme provided financial support for this project. The goal of this initiative was to fulfil the protein requirements of the people at low cost. Another aim of this project was to provide livelihood opportunities for the displaced. Only 2000 out of 20,000 displaced families accepted fishing as their primary occupation. The rest 18,000 families could not cope up with fishing work and migrated to nearby places for laborer jobs. The Cage project: The cage fish farming is a method of nurturing small fishes in iron cages or modular cages with a size of 6x4x4 meters. These cages float in the water bodies. Nylon net surrounds the cage so that fishes don't go out of the cage.The cages are water resistant and needs less maintenance. The total cost of the cage is around Rs.2.5 lakhs-Rs.3 lakhs.The production of fish in one cage may vary from 4-5 tons in every six months. In 2011, the government has provided a 100 % subsidy to Chandil Bandh Visthapit Matsyajibi Swabalambi Sahakari Samiti (CBVMSSS) for buying 70 cages for cage culture farming. In 2013 the government further provided 126 modular cages to CBVMSSS with a 90 % subsidy. The CBVMSSS is the body of displaced farmers who formed this cooperative to run fishing business. Fish used in cage culture: The fish cultured in the Chandil reservoir belongs to the variety called Pangasius. The Pangasius fish belong to a family of catfish, which is native of Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. The speciality of this fish is in six months the weight of the fish increases to 1 kg. The cost of production for one kg of Phangasius is Rs.35-Rs.40 and the selling price is Rs 70-Rs. 80 per kg. For Indian conditions this variety of fish is good for cultivation in open aquaculture ponds or in in dam reservoirs. This fish is cheap, high in demand, easy to cultivate and can yield high profits in less time. In the last few years the production of fish in Chandil reservoir has improved. The average fish produced from 2011 to 2013 was 134.33 tons and the net income of CBVMSSS in 2012-13 is around Rs.25 lakhs. The temporary improvement in income of 2000 displaced families is a matter of relief for the government for the time being. But generating employment for 18000 displaced is still a big challenge for any government. The video gives a brief overview of the displacement due to Chandil dam and also an overview on Cage fish farming.

Revival of Doling lake, Rabongla, Sikkim
 
03:51
Rabongla is a small tourist town situated at an elevation of 7000 ft in south Sikkim district of the state of Sikkim, India. Like other mountain areas, people here depend on springs, streams and lakes for water. Lakes store water and recharge sources of groundwater such as wells and also significantly contribute to the ecological stability of the region. However, this valuable resource has been degrading with time. This video features one of the initiatives by Government of Sikkim in reviving dying lakes. The Doling lake was seasonal, and would last during the rainy season only and for the rest of the year, would remain dry. Today, the lake has become perennial and lasts throughout the year. Though the revival effort was to promote tourism and serve tourists visiting the Doling Gumpha Monastery nearby, the water in the lake in the future, could be used to reach households in water scarce areas nearby.

Myth of the Mud tank
 
08:02
"The Lost Lakes of Bangalore" is a project to document Bengaluru's many tanks and lakes which have vanished with unplanned urbanization and growth. "Myth of the Mud Tank" by Sharanya, Akhila, Raunak and Sucheth explores a myth associated with Ulsoor lake - the myth of the mud tank. The myth talks of a pair of fish that were introduced by the gods into Ulsoor lake. The fish are separated during a storm and the effort to reunite them ends in failure. Weaving modern imagery somewhat incongrously with the story, the movie subtly makes a connection to shortsighted greed and ignorance that leads us to make wrong decisions - a moral that is more than applicable today too. Imaginatively overlaying animation over visuals, the movie is a treat to watch. Erudite commentary done with flair add to the effect.

These communities share a close bond with their land and nature and consider it crucial to their identity. Though the Sixth Schedule in certain areas of Northeast India recognizes the indigenous communities' rights over land and self-governance, these communities continue to feel discriminated and marginalised. There is a strong felt need among the people to develop or modernise without compromising on their identity.

Rivers of North East India, Lecture by Dr Chandan Mahanta, Sep 23, 2011, Part I
 
17:30
The fourth lecture in the ten-part series titled "Living Rivers, Dying Rivers" was delivered by Dr. Chandan Mahanta, Professor, Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati on the subject "Rivers in North-East India". This lecture got under way September 23, 2011 at the India International Centre, New Delhi. It highlighted the complex challenges in the management of North East India's river systems as an upshot of its peculiar physiography, excessive flow in the river and its tributaries during the annual monsoon, drainage problems, degradation of the catchment, high sedimentation, proneness to earthquakes/ landslide and encroachment of flood plains. The series coordinated by Prof. Ramaswamy R Iyer aims at understanding what has been happening to rivers across India and drawing appropriate lessons. A certain number of rivers, some sick or dying, some living and healthy, and some showing early signs of sickness, are being taken up for presentations and discussion, in the series and an attempt made to understand what has gone wrong in many cases, what has gone right in some, and what needs to be done to revive and restore dying or sick rivers.
