Lost To The Sea: A Study On Sea Intrusion And Displacement In Coastal Odisha is a study that seeks to present the voices of the people in the State affected by seawater intrusion in their communities and lands. The research team surveyed 23 villages across Bhadrak, Ganjam, Jagatsinghpur, Kendrapara and Puri, five coastal districts of Odisha. Our purpose was to know more about the vulnerabilities of communities affected by seawater intrusion and displacement, learn about the community’s existing adaptive and coping strategies to deal with this issue, and understand community perspectives and resilience-building approaches.
Through this publication, we would like to share people’s perspectives and possible solutions to the crises they are facing. We hope that this would provide all concerned with valuable insight, and would lead to the recognition and prioritization of the issues of sea erosion, salination and displacement. A better understanding of the dangers of sea intrusion would enable us to develop plans and allocate resources towards building resilience and create a loss and damage framework so that people can avail compensation whenever they are badly affected.
