A Newslaundry story on the Cauvery river water dispute has won the IIMC Alumni Association Award for environment reporting.

The story by TR Vivek was the second and final part of a series on one of India’s most intractable water disputes. The first part had won the IIMC Alumni Association Award for development reporting in 2018 as well as the Mumbai Press Club’s prestigious RedInk Award.

Vivek’s series, called Cauvery Chronicles, was funded entirely by our readers as an NL Sena project. If you would like to support independent reportage such as this, join NL Sena. To keep the news free, subscribe to Newslaundry.

For the first part of the Cauvery Chronicles, Vivek travelled to the four districts of Karnataka through which the river flows to understand how the old dispute affected the people’s lives. He also looked at the politics and the agricultural aspects of the region. For the second part, he went downstream to Tamil Nadu, to explore the other side of this battle for water between the two states.

Vivek thanked Newslaundry for providing him the resources required for the story and publishing it.
