Bangalore lakes have grabbed unprecedented attention over the recent years, both in the media and academia. And this has not been limited by geographic location.

Johan Enqvist, studying for a PhD in Natural Resource Management at SRC, is currently on his second visit to Bangalore. He is doing interviews with people engaged in the city’s lakes and their restoration. Among other things, he is interested in why and how people start and carry out this kind of work. As a part of his study, he has a short online survey, for anyone involved with Bangalore’s lakes – whether you have got recently involved, or have been at it for several years. There are 15 questions in total, and the survey should not take more than 5-7 minutes to complete. If any question is not relevant it can be left blank.
