The sixth lecture in the ten-part series titled "Living rivers, dying rivers" was delivered on the subject "Rivers in Western Ghats of India" by Parineeta Dandekar, South Asia Network on Dams, River and People (SANDRP) and Pandurang Hegde, activist, environmentalist and development critic. The lecture held on November 25, 2011 at the India International Centre, New Delhi highlighted the complex challenges faced by the much abused rivers of Western Ghats of Maharashtra and Karnataka because of anthropogenic threats like deforestation of catchments, sand mining, dam construction, industrial effluent disposal into rivers, inefficient land-use practices all of which lead to shrinking and isolating ecosystems and an adverse impact on peoples livelihoods and health.
The series coordinated by Prof. Ramaswamy R Iyer aims at understanding what has been happening to rivers 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.
