Nutan Maurya

Brief Profile : I am an Environmental Anthropologist. I do research and write on pollution risk to public health and livelihood. I am also interested in understanding and investigating the urban-water dynamics, political ecology of wastewater management, and urbanisation and cultural politics of environmental crisis. Recently I collaborated with TCD under Water to Cloud (W2C) project to study the impact of river water pollution on the health and livelihoods of the riverine communities of the river Yamuna in Delhi and the river Ganga in UP and WB.
