Shilpa Dahake

Brief Profile:
My current research explores the interaction of the cultural-religious, the political-economic and the ecological dimensions of the Godavari River in Nashik city in Maharashtra. Broadly, investigating how the multiple perspectives of a natural resource overlap, contradict, challenge and support each other, thus shaping the urban landscape and producing socio-spatial inequalities.
Apart from this, associated with the ‘Reconnecting with Godavari’ which is a public forum working towards increasing public participation within the riverscape governance.
