Delineating marine bioregions requires understanding the historical interconnections between the lived experiences of humans with the coastal areas they inhabit, and the oceans beyond, where they make their livelihoods. It is imperative to recognise the cultural, ecological, geomorphic, political, and social dimensions of these relationships and incorporate the diverse perspectives visible in the institutional mechanisms created through these connections.
The Proposed study utilizes recent land use and land cover data (Sentinel 2), forest fire point data from the Forest Survey of India (FSI), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) landslide inventory, and landslides demarcated from high resolution and multi-date Google Earth images to specify different types of eco-regions in the Teesta basin.

overlie such regions.
Large-scale renewable energy projects are being developed in the drylands of Africa, Asia and Latina America without adequate consultation with pastoralists that have been using the land for grazing their livestock since time memorial.
