Dokumentation Ergebnisse 29./30 August 2006 / Folie 2 Folie 2 Damage of wetlands, marshy lands and mangroves (Sompeta & Uddanam region) threatening the natural eco-system and survival base of vulnerable communities. Unsound resource use patterns disturbing natural habitats and increasing vulnerability. Poor livelihood infrastructure hindering community resilience to climate change impact. Steep fall in fish catch and unviable fishing sector triggering forced migration to Sourashtra region (West Coast). Sand mining, loss of green cover on sand dunes and destruction of shelter belts, increasing the vulnerability to disasters. The Scenario: Contextual Reality
Dokumentation Ergebnisse 29./30 August 2006 / Folie 3 Folie 3 Poor quality of drinking water inflicting new health related hazards (Kedney & skin problmes). Weak Institutioinal structures (CBOs) dominated by IKP staff at various levels. Lack of awareness on various forms of disasters and management.
