ABSTRACT

Disaster risk reduction is an institutional intervention programme and there are both global and local strategies and approaches available. Regulating natural resource is one among them. This paper attempts to analyse the globally and nationally existing water governance approaches and their relative failure to impede the large scale river pollution in India’s mining areas. The diversion of river for mining have resulted in multiple hazards in the mineral deposits areas of India. These approaches are advocating for ‘sustainable development’ and offer an institutional mechanism to integrate disaster risk reduction with environmental security. The regulatory measured are also being regulated by the economic interests of mining.
