Shoot: Water and Coal Conflicts in Central India
GP0STO140
In the backdrop of a drought looming over some Indian regions, a new report titled "Endangered Waters" released by Greenpeace has found that large clusters of coal fired power plants proposed in Vidarbha region in Maharastra may bring down the future availability of water in the Wardha river by 40% and affect irrigation for about 1 lakh hectares of farmland in the future. Greenpeace recommends an immediate moratorium on further environment clearances to coal power plants in Vidarbha as well as all the inland districts in the country. The existing clearances must be reexamined on the basis of a cumulative water impact and availability assessment in the river basins so that water conflicts between various users can be avoided and irrigation needs of farmers are not jeopardized.
