Abstract

There is no doubt that the water authorities in India have to think and to work towards allocative water management strategies to ensure long-term judicious land and water development and management. Allocative water management strategies offer great opportunities to significantly improve the water productivity in agriculture and in other sectors. It also offers opportunities in combating environmental degradation and in the reconstruction of degenerated natural resources. This report presents a problem analysis and a first inventory and assessment of the opportunities and implications of allocative water management in terms of (economical) water benefits, agricultural benefits and ecological benefits. The report also presents tools for strategical and operational allocative water management and details on institutional aspects. This report describes the activities executed from May 2006 to March 2007 and is aimed as initial knowledge base and starting point for further investigations
