The urban and peri-urban water bodies and wetlands residing inside parks and the abundance of wildlife they support are being threatened by intensive visits and unexpected tourist and leisure activities in and around Indian cities. Urban revitalization efforts often result in the gradual devastation of local ecosystems. The major focus of this thesis is on determining whether or not current management approaches will secure the long-term viability of these delicate ecosystems. Nature Park, Taratala, Kolkata; Rabindra Sarobar, Kolkata; Eco Park, New Town, Rajarhat; Jubilee Park, Gayshpur, Kalyani; and Millenium Science Park, Ashoknagar, Habra were chosen as the five case study locations in and around Kolkata, India. Scope The fundamental goal of this study is to conserve urban and peri-urban water bodies and wetlands, thus we will be looking at the social, ecological, and economic sustainability of these ecosystems. This study's focus is on water bodies and wetlands within urban and peri-urban park settings, and it uses socio-ecological criteria and indicators to analyze the current state of five such case study sites. The study's goals are to identify critical issues, the responsible and determining factors of strengths and weaknesses at the case study sites, and relevant policies at site and system levels.
