Water in the Coming Decades: Policy and Governance Issues in India

Kamta Prasad (Author)

India has a surface and ground water irrigation potential of nearly 100 million hectares, which has made it a country with the largest irrigated area in the world. This book deals with the policy and governance issues in relation to management as well as development of water resources in India. Taking a holistic approach, it makes a critical review of the state of the art concerning most of the important aspects of the water sector and comes forward with practical suggestions to improve the system further. The perspective of this book is mainly social, economic and institutional and not technological.

While the book focuses on India, the issues discussed and their implications are relevant to a greater part of the world, specially the developing eorld. The book would be useful for researchers, administrators, policy-makers and those interested in water resources in india and elsewhere.
