Managing Ground Water Resources in Rural India: The community and Beyond

Research reports

The report is the output of a project focusing specifically on addressing problems occurring in rural areas resulting from over-abstraction of groundwater for agricultural production. Although community-based management has been attempted in forest, watershed and other natural-resource contexts, the viability of the approach has not been explored for groundwater management. The project focuses on the groundwater resource, taking as its starting point the conventional meaning of groundwater management.
