Statement of interest: Georgina Drew, PhD, is a Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor) of Anthropology and Development Studies at the University of Adelaide in South Australia. Her work has received funding from the Fulbright Hays Program, the National Science Foundation, and Rotary International. She has over 25 articles to her credit that examine human-environment relationships, gendered environmental practices, the impact of religion on the politics of development and environment, and the political ecology of water resource management. These topics have led her to work extensively with social movements contesting unsustainable resource management in various parts of the world. She is also the author of a book published in 2017 by the University of Arizona Press entitled, River Dialogues: Hindu Faith and the Political Ecology of Dams on the Sacred Ganga. Georgina’s current and pending research on the cultural politics of urban rainwater harvesting in South Asia is funded by a three-year fellowship from the Australian Research Council (DE160101178).  The following is a link to my recently published book: http://www.uapress.arizona.edu/Books/bid2710.htm
