Fundamental changes must take place in how water is allocated, planned, and managed if India's goals for continued economic growth and improved social and environmental conditions are to be met. India's needs are especially severe due to its rapidly developing water constraints, environmental problems, huge population, regional inequalities in water availability along with the federal administrative structure and rapid demographic and economic growth. The findings of 'Inter-Sectoral Water Allocation, Planning and Management' are that a comprehensive approach is needed in order to implement change. The book provides detailed recommendations in the areas of policy making, legislation and regulations, institutions, economic incentives, technology, and public information.
