Gujarat, with its longest coastline of 1,600 km on Arabian Sea forms the northern-western maritime state of India. The present study is being conducted for coastal villages and urban centers along 14 talukas around the Gulf of Kachchh in a view of assessing the variability pertaining to environmental, ecological, cultural and socio-economical changes.
In order to understand these changes along with the synergistic effects of climate change, industrialization, urbanisation and implications on the cultural and historical aspects of the region, the present study aims at ;
1) Assessing the background environmental and ecological set up of the region;
2) Industrial and urban development affecting socioeconomics, livelihood and cultural aspects of the region
3) Identifying the areas where immediate and long term interventions are needed to maintain cultural and ecological integrity of the region.
