A Niti Aayog report in 2018 confirmed what we all feared – India is facing the ‘worst water crisis in its history’. But the biggest crisis today is – the crisis of water governance. In India, the governance of water is organised largely around laws and institutions tasked with allocating and regulating the use of water among various claimants, but doesn’t involve water protection. This has resulted in poor outcomes since governance must include protection in order to ensure that water is available today and in the future. The failure to do so has led to conflicts among different water users.
