Water Resources Management

Realities and Challenges

Edited by: K. Nageswara Rao

Ecological concern is not merely an environmental concern, but also calls for prudent use of water resources. The planning and implementation of Indian water resources projects involve a number of socio-economic aspects and issues, such as environmental sustainability, appropriate resettlement, rehabilitation of project-affected people and livestock, public health concerns of water impoundment, dam safety, etc. This book examines the views and opinions of Indian experts regarding conservation and effective utilization of water resources that are fast becoming scarce in their availability. The contributors in the book include experts in drought studies, environmental studies, public utility studies, agriculture, and watershed management areas. The suggestions, based on the micro level studies, are of immense relevance and will be useful for policy formulation and practical implementation of programs.
