Why the question:

The author of the article brings to us the importance of urban wetlands in resolving/addressing the water crisis of the urban areas of the country.

Key Demand of the question:

Discuss in detail the possible contributions that urban wetland development can make in averting the water crisis facing the urban regions of the country.

Directive:

Discuss – This is an all-encompassing directive – you have to debate on paper by going through the details of the issues concerned by examining each one of them. You have to give reasons for both for and against arguments.

Structure of the answer:

Introduction:

Start with some important statistics such as the data of report; WWF Risk Filter analysis in the context of the question.

Body:

Start by explaining in what way developing urban wetlands and watershed are crucial to containing the crisis.

Through the ages, urban wetlands have been the lifeline of most cities in India. They were preserved and looked after by the people as their main source of water supply for drinking and irrigation. These wetlands are found all over the country and are either natural or built by people. Over the years, they have gradually depleted, leading to a number of problems in urban areas such as flooding, water scarcity, and water logging.

Present a case study to substantiate the contributions of wetlands in addressing the water crisis of the urban areas.

Conclusion:

People in the urban areas must learn to live in harmony with nature in their own habitat. The wetlands, the green belts, and the flora and fauna of these areas have to be preserved for urban areas to survive and remain healthy.
