Politics of Water Resource Development in India by John R. Wood

Book Description

This book is about the politics of water resource development and management in India, with special reference to the Narmada river waters dispute. The author draws on a wealth of studies on Narmada as also his own research to analyse the controversy from the perspective of a political scientist. The author analyses three aspects of the conflict over developing the waters of the Narmada: - The politics of the inter-state river water dispute over Narmada waters in the context of Indian centre-state and inter-state relationships and the constitutional and legal mechanisms for resolving disputes among riparian states. - The Narmada upstream-downstream politics implicit in the battle between downstream Gujarat and Rajasthan versus upstream Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. - The much-publicized struggle between those for and others against the construction of the gigantic Sardar Sarovar dam. Given the highly contentious nature of these struggles, the author objectively highlights how and why the outcomes of such struggles have largely depended on the realities of power.

Author Biography - John R. Wood

John Wood analyzes three aspects of the conflict over developing the waters of the Narmada: the politics of the inter-state river water dispute over Narmada waters in the context of Indian centre-state and state-state relationships and the constitutional and legal mechanisms for resolving disputes among co-riparian states; the Narmada upstream-downstream politics; and the struggle between the pro and anti-dam forces over the construction of the Sardar Sarovar dam.
