“Life in troubled water” project on the effect of unscientific construction along the coasts of South India documents the impact of chemical plants, factories and harbours that came upon the seashore, and other development activity which disturbed the sand movement and wave patterns, thus triggering largescale erosion and deposition of sand. The project also focuses on how erosion and drastic environmental degradation affect the livelihood of the fishermen living along the coast.
