The Urban Biblical Project aims to revitalise the world’s largest urban landscape, with the hope of restoring and improving the landscape.
The project was launched in 2011, but the first two phases have been completed and are currently being evaluated by the US Department of the Interior.
The first phase was completed in April this year and includes an initial 1,400 hectares of land on the west bank of the Ganges River in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.
According to the project, this is the largest single-site urban landscape restoration project ever undertaken in the world, and the most important of its kind in the country.
The project will also include restoration of an area of land measuring more than 4 million square metres (almost 2,000 square miles) of land that lies outside the national parks in the state of Tamil Nadu, with plans to expand the project to other states in the region.
“It’s really an amazing story.
We have been waiting for this project for years, we just waited for it to happen,” said Shanti Ramachandran, the project’s executive director.
She said that it is the first time that such an ambitious urban landscape project has been undertaken in India, and was very fortunate to be able to partner with the Indian government and the US government to bring this project to fruition.
“We feel really fortunate to have this project at the heart of our country, in the heartland of India, where people are passionate about their heritage, they are passionate for their environment and we feel very proud to have the opportunity to work with the government of India and the government in the US to bring it to life,” Ms Ramachan said.
“This is a unique opportunity for the world to see what is possible in a very fragile world, in a country where we have been given so much and it is only now that we are seeing the power of this project.”
The first two phase of the project will involve an initial 100,000 hectares of the land, and a second 100,0000 hectares in the future.
The first project was funded by the Department of Interior and Urban Renewal.
The second phase is the most ambitious of the two.
It is the second phase of a three-phase project to restore the Ganga River basin to a state of natural preservation.
Ms Ramachangar said that the second and final phase of this will have an additional 1,000,000-2,000 km2 of restoration and development.
The projects first phase involved the Gautam Budh Nagar area, and this is what the US has funded.
“Gautam bhind has been a sacred site for the indigenous people of this region for over 1,500 years and we want to bring the land back to that place,” Ms Shanti said.
It is hoped that the first phase will involve approximately 1,700,000 ha of the initial land in the Gange and the river, and another 700,000ha of the remaining Ganges-Ganges-Nagar.
“The Ganges is an amazing river, it is one of the most magnificent rivers in the planet, but it is also the oldest river in the Indian subcontinent, which is why it is so important to have a very clear vision of what this project is going to achieve,” Ms Ramesh added.
The US has also provided about $2.5 million in funding to the first and second phases.
In addition to the restoration and reconstruction of the area, the US will also contribute $3 million to the third phase.
The Gautams Budh Nambi River, known locally as the Gaga, is one in a series of rivers that run through the Ghat region in India’s northern plains.
As well as its namesake river, the Gago, the region is home to other important waterways including the Brahmaputra, Ganges and Yamuna rivers.
Although India has a very large and diverse river system, the river system is very fragile, and is usually heavily dependent on rainfall.
When the rains don’t come, the water is diverted to the neighbouring Brahmapur Basin to be pumped out into the river.
The Brahmaputris are the oldest and largest river systems in the subcontent, and are one of India’s major water sources.
This water is then used for irrigation and for building and building.
A dam was built on the Gaugam hills to divert water from the Giga-Ganga, but this was later damaged by floods in 2009.
The dam was eventually replaced by the Yamuna, but was also damaged by flooding in 2015.
With this in mind, the second part of the work will be to rebuild the Gharwadi Dam.
This dam is located in the central Ganga basin and is a major reservoir for the Gau
