Community Water Management

By G.S. Narwani

Water is not a private property, but a common resource, a boon of nature. The right to conserve, utilize and manage water is fully vested with local communities. This is the very basis of water democracy. The book deals with community management of tanks, tubewells, lift irrigation schemes, watershed projects, water harvesting structures, canal irrigation and drinking water programmes. Here, a reader can find community management efforts regarding water in different areas of the country at one place in historical perspective. The book is likely to interest all those concerned with irrigation management, rural development, policy making and infrastructure development.
