A monthly dose of Odia water news from the Water Feeder

Find attached the first issue (May 09) of 'Water Feeder', a monthly dose of Water News compiled from Odia news papers.


This is an attempt to compile and analyze water-related news published in Odia dailies with an objective to help water professionals and enthusiasts to capture and comprehend issues and conflicts around water (through eyes of media). It is also going to provide a geographical, seasonal and media perspective of water issues and conflicts in Odisha to stimulate thoughts and actions.

We are beginning this initiative with a Monthly 'News Analysis' covering 5 major Odia Dailies. An odia version is also on its way. Each news item have been tagged and put in a searchable database, which will be shortly uploaded in the net along with scanned copy of each news item.

We look forward to your comments and feedback. (Please send your response to baitarani@gmail.com)
