Based on extensive empirical and analytical research, this collection brings together A. Vaidyanathan?s recent work on water resources management in India in a multidisciplinary perspective. The volume discusses the agro-climatic context, irrigation and agricultural technology, legal-institutional arrangements, and the economic environment. Rejecting the proposal of river interlinking, Vaidyanathan builds a strong case for a major shift towards integrated watershed development in rain-fed areas, reducing waste and overexploitation of water, and resulting in a more efficient use of irrigation water. The author discusses investments in groundwater development, extension of irrigation facilities, and major disparities between rain-fed and irrigated areas in detail. He strongly advocates reforms at the economic, legal, and institutional level as well as public funding of new research to improve the knowledge base for decision making. As irrigation is the largest user of water, the role of private supply sources is usually not studied. To fill this gap the author undertook a survey, the results of which are presented in the case study of Chennai city.
