dc.description.abstract This brief presents broad insights from the Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions (ASSAR) Regional Diagnostic Study (RDS) and initial research in Bangalore. The urbanisation trends and structural changes observed in Bangalore are typical of many cities in India. Ironically, urbanisation is considered a remedy for a host of developmental issues (poverty, inequality and livelihood concerns). Recent evidence suggests this is seldom the case. Water scarcity is a key challenge in Bangalore. Along with other socio-economic vulnerabilities, it leads to accumulated risks over time. Governance responses to critical vulnerabilities are fragmented, making coordination across different agencies and scales challenging. en
