Managing Water in River Basins

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the changes in water use hydrology in India, focusing on the issues of transboundary water management. It analyses how the green and blue water use for agriculture in the Narmada River Basin has changed over the past three decades. The findings indicate that there has been dramatic increase in the blue water diversion and use in the basin against green water use and that a significant portion of the diverted surface water is lost in percolation.

Keywords:   water use hydrology, India, transboundary water management, green water, blue water, agriculture, Narmada River Basin, water diversion, surface water, percolation, population growth
