Water, City and Urban Planning: Assessing the Role of Groundwater in Urban Development and Planning in Delhi
AbstractThe paper examines the stages and patterns of urban evolution in the Delhi metropolis and its peri-urban areas and links the role of groundwater in urban development from the past to the present. With the help of a case study -‘Dwarka sub-city’ within the immediate urban extensions in NCT Delhi, the paper establishes the systemic role that groundwater plays in the various stages of urban development and planning in NCT Delhi and its peri-urban areas. Based on the findings, the paper suggests policy interventions in developing a land use strategy for urban areas reflecting concerns of sustainable use of groundwater in Delhi. [CSH No. 31].
