Bundh Rejuvenation and Eco-Restoration of Urban Forest, Gurugram

(Winner of WRI CK2017 Award in the Civil Society category)

Across the world, several projects are aimed at rebuilding derelict urban environments to transform and rejuvenate marginalized places into vibrant public spaces for the city. The revival of such neglected spaces can serve to energize urban landscapes and create healthy environments for outdoor leisure for city dwellers.
Initiated by a local NGO Iamgurgaon (IAG) along with the Forest Department, Haryana, the Bundh Rejuvenation project is being developed on a public-private- partnership model, funded by corporate bodies like American Express with CSR funds.

The bundh was historically used as a check-dam in a water collection system. The 5.2 kilometre long stretch of the bundh along a nullah, is an existing forest strip, belonging to the Forest Department, Haryana. It traverses alongside several high-end residential neighbourhoods as well as squatter settlements. Presently this long stretch of forest land, in the midst of high-end residential housing enclaves, lies in a sad state of misuse.
