Land Use



Delhiā€™s unnatural problem is produced by intertwined problems in four areas: water quality, air quality, lack of planning, and food security.


These can be characterized by two related issues of quality and inequality. These issues must be analyzed for both their direct impact on the environment, as well as their implications on the health, economy, politics, and quality of life of Delhi citizens.
