  • REVIVING ECOSYSTEMS : Land I Water I Forest

Deepak Harilal Patel



The demand and increase in urbanization has caused pressure on the green pockets of the city. Jalgaon City situated in North Maharashtra had seen rapid urbanization in the past few years letting the city’s fringes extend in all sides. The character of these fringes had been dominated by a certain growth pattern demanded by the city. These fringes consisting of agriculture fields, forests, wetlands becomes an area of high ecological importance which surrounds the city and are extremely vulnerable to intrusion, change, and loss. The agriculture fields are reconsidered as development lands which has compromised the value of ecologically important sites and are left in barren state for most of the time in the year. This make the need to revive such sites of ecological importance which holds the potential to contribute to the city.
