Water Conflicts Google Map

This is a very modest first attempt by the Forum to spatially locate the important conflicts around water in India with the help of Google maps. We are beginning this effort with the conflicts that we have already documented by the Forum. You could also contribute to this effort by sending in abstracts of conflict cases that you know. Send a write up of 250 words containing details like the location, conflicting parties, nature of the conflict and contact details of important contacts related to this conflict to Shruti Vispute at Also send your comments and suggestions to Shruti. Forum is thankful to Suchita Jain of SOPPECOM for the efforts she has put in to develop this. K. J. Joy (For Forum)
