Synopsis Water resource management is a comprehensive term at the present sphere of time when acute shortage of water prevails everywhere.

The sources of freshwater on the earth in the form of glaciers, rivers, natural pools, lakes, wells and groundwater are receding at an alarming rate. Receding groundwater table and over-use of surface freshwater for drinking and irrigation purposes, due to population explosion, posed severe impediments and resulted in acute problem of water. Further, with the continuous increase in water pollution, the freshwater reservoirs cannot be used for drinking purposes. If this trend continues, it would create problems for the very survival of living beings. It is the resources as a need base by implementing national policies and planning. This book sets the pace for discussing all aspects of water management. Water Resource Management and Policy Perspectives is unique in the sense that it leads to way for further research, policy making and will be helpful for those working in the field of water management.
