Yamuna River Project International Symposium/Workshop
The Yamuna is one of India’s most important rivers, ecologically, spiritually and economically. The portion of it that runs through Delhi is heavily contaminated with industrial effluents and sewage. Hidden from view, its floodplain is the home to whole communities of Delhi’s poorest. At the same time, the river itself has enormous sacred importance for millions of Indians. YRP’s goal is for UVA and Indian colleagues to consider how the river might be recovered and rethought as an axis of Delhi’s life.
