Mumbai coastline crisis: How to save a city: Treat its waste well

The coastal city of Mumbai is in crisis. There’s plastic and waste in its ocean and its beaches. The fisher communities living along its coastline are losing access to fishing commons and livelihoods. Private vehicles and mass transit systems like buses jostle for space on narrow roads, ensuring longer hours for commuters travelling the length of the city. Urban flooding, related to as much to monsoon as to the high tide, is a leading cause of a host of health conditions. How will we save our city? In a multi-part series, Hindustan Times asks you to take a clear, hard look at the unfolding crisis and our role in it.
