Scarcity, Abundance & The Human Dimension: Analyzing urban-rural water conflict in India

Date and Time




National governance reform is the central challenge within the Indian water sector. However, national initiatives on legal reform underestimate the challenges of place-specific water issues in the Indian context. This webinar presents case studies on rural-urban transfers of water in large metropolitan centers, highlighting the importance of governance reform and the centrality of politics in the re-allocation of water from agricultural to urban-industrial use.
