Water Management: Multiple Dimensions

Rakesh Hooja (Editor) Ramesh K. Arora (Editor) K.K. Parnami (Editor)

An anthology of over 15 analytical and reflective essays and articles by leading experts from all over India, this book discusses the various facets and dimensions – sociological, economical, environmental, institutional, technical and administrative – of water management, with examples, illustrations and case studies from the Indian context. Long term water demand, water savings and conservation, community participation in management of water resources, management of water supplies in rural and urban areas, interlinking of rivers, and watershed approach for management of water in rainfed areas, are among the diverse specific themes explored theoretically and empirically in those scholarly papers. With water scarcity being a global problem, the ideas, experiences and perspectives as contained in this book, should be of high value to a wide cross section of readers, including researchers and policy-makers, all over the world.
