Diverting the Flow: Gender Equity and Water in South Asia
Zubaan/Atlantic Publishers & Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381017203; Hardcover; New; New; 
Across the South Asian region, water determines livelihoods and in some cases even survival. However, water also creates exclusions. Access to water, and its social organization, are intimately tied up with power relations. This book provides an overview of gender, equity and water issues relevant to South Asia. The essays empirically illustrate and theoretically argue how gender intersects with other axes of social differences such as class, caste, ethnicity, age and religion to shape water access, use and management practices. Divided into six thematic sections, each of which starts with an introduction of relevant concepts, debates and theories, the book looks at laws and rights, policies, technologies and intervention strategies. In all, the book clearly shows how understanding, and changing the use, distribution and management of water is conditional upon understanding and accommodating gender relations.

Incorporating Groundwater Irrigation: Technology Dynamics and Conjunctive Water Management in the Nepal Terai
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8125029923 / 9788125029922; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This book is based on Suman Gautamís doctoral research with the Irrigation and Water Engineering Group, Wageningen University, the Netherlands. Groundwater development for irrigation using deep as well as shallow tubewells has been a key focus in rural development strategies in the terai of Nepal for nearly three decades. Yet, there has been little study of how groundwater is used alone or in conjunction with other sources of water for irrigation and what transformations in governance and production these technology choices relate with.
