Forum > Any other > Garden City of India - Bangalore Unlivable by 2025 if deprived of clean air and water

Posted by Susan Sharma on December 09, 2023


This is the title of a video I made in 2017, after seeing the Bellandur lake catch fire.  

"By 2020, 93% of Bengaluru’s landscape would be filled with paved surfaces. This drastic reduction in open and green spaces would make the region rich with green house gases, water-scarce, non-resilient and unliveable, depriving the city-dwellers of clean air, water and environment."  a report from IISC said this

In the 1970s, there were still 285 lakes in the city, making it self-sufficient in its water needs. Today, however, there are just 194 lakes, and the large majority of them are sewage-fed. The rest have been lost to encroachments.

Have things improved in Bangalore since?  Welcome comments from Bangaloreans on the you tube video link given below.

The Garden City of India, Bangalore, faces a concerning future if it continues to struggle with clean air and water. Urgent measures are needed to address pollution and water scarcity to ensure the city remains livable and preserves its reputation as a vibrant urban center with a high quality of life.
