Description

Drawing on global and Indian literature as well as field studies, this short introduction provides a holistic analysis of water-related issues and identifies the shortcomings in the present water governance system. The author makes a case for radical changes in strategy and policy, with a shift in focus from merely supply augmentation to encouraging civil society participation, carrying out water governance reforms, and providing incentives for efficient water use.

Review


‘Vaidyanathan's short introduction is global in range, thematically comprehensive, and presents technicalities and complexities in a lucid, readable manner.’
—Ramaswamy R. Iyer, Former Secretary, Water Resources, Government of India

‘Time was when rivers were rivers and water, water. Today rivers have become political entities, water the subject and the tool for geo-political contestations. Vaidyanathan observes the flowing arguments, fluid acrimonies and flurried negotiations to suggest wise solutions.’
—Gopalkrishna Gandhi, Former Governor of West Bengal

‘[T]his in-depth and accessible study on the emerging water crisis is a necessary read for anyone concerned about sustainable development.’
—Tirthankar Roy, Professor of Economic History, London School of Economics and Political Science
