Ecological Regions
Explore the ecological diversity of India - from the dry cold deserts of Ladakh to the dry, hot desert of Rajasthan; from the sub-temperate mountains of the Nilgiris to the alluvial monotonous plains of the gangetic valley and the plateaus of the Deccan and Chotanagpur; and from the dry slopes of the Aravallis to the humid slopes of Meghalaya, Nagaland and Mizoram.

Over the centuries, Indians have developed a range of techniques to harvest every possible form of water - from rainwater to groundwater, stream to river water, and floodwater.
