  • Flooded Cities: A Comparative Analysis of Flood Management Policies in
           Indian states

    • Authors: Karabi Bezboruah, Melanie Sattler, Arpita Bhatt
      Abstract: Flooding is a critical issue affecting many countries worldwide with severe consequences on the lives of their residents. In this paper, we conduct a case study of the flood management policies of India by evaluating their implementation in six Indian states that are affected by recurrent flooding every year. The states selected have major cities located near water bodies and have experienced flooding leading to deaths and displacement besides slowing down economic and community development. We evaluate how each of the states align their policies to the national level disaster management guidelines for flood management. We find that for policies established at the state level, implementation within the various regions can vary with some urban areas going beyond the state and national guidelines. We find that not all Indian states follow the established national guidelines, and this poses questions on the challenges on having uniform flood management policies for addressing a complex issue.

  • Exploring productive Features of Infrastructure

    • Authors: Janina Herzog-Hawelka
      Abstract: This article explores social mobilisation in the context of the 2018 water crisis in Cape Town. Water infrastructure reveals political realities and disciplines, directs and shapes the lives and lifestyles of different populations. The announcement of Day Zero caused various reactions across Cape Town but made clear that the water infrastructure was quotidian and unremarkable whilst working uninterruptedly. The interference of the water infrastructure created an awareness of water and its use across Cape Town. Capetonians developed daily strategies to cope with the situation. These strategies interfered with their daily tasks, impacted personal relationships, and revealed narrations of struggle and privilege. During the water crisis, people became experts on water-related topics and many residents engaged extensively with water realities that affected their own lives and the lives of those around them. Water realities arose from daily challenges which Capetonians were experiencing and as a result, they felt the need to address the issue with vigour, including in the form of social mobilisation, civic activism, and public participation processes.
