Extra resources for Water Management, Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture in Developing Economies

Example text

Groundwater recharge using local runoff: a fallacy? It is often suggested that flows from the small canals (The Times of India, 2008) or small water harvesting/artificial recharge structure (GOI, 2007; Shah, 2009) should be used for recharging aquifers. , 2008a). Most of the over-exploited districts in India are in western and central Rajasthan; almost the entire Punjab; alluvial north Gujarat; and parts of Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu (GOI, 2005). The surface water resources in the basins of these districts are falling, are extremely limited and are already tapped using large and medium reservoirs (GOI, 1999).

On the other hand, there is an over-emphasis on the role of groundwater recharge augmentation and small water harvesting schemes. While small water harvesting structures would provide reliable water supplies locally in certain hydrological settings, in most regions this would make little hydrological and economic sense. Adding to this, the policies governing the use of water in agriculture are degenerative, driven by political considerations, and promote inequity in access and inefficient use of what is a precious resource: they defeat the very purpose of sustainable agricultural production.
