While watershed development programmes in India are increasingly being understood as an integrated approach for rural development, the rise in water demand combined with the decline in water supplies have seen commercialization of water in form of informal markets in rural India with respect to trade in irrigation water and urban water market in response to the need for safe drinking water and lack of piped water supply. To meet the demand for water in the future, communities will need to work to conserve and reallocate existing water resources. Thus researches on conservation of water become necessary to look into the issues of planning, management, regulatory and enforcement powers of government and communities to conserve water to reduce threats of scarcity and long term sustainability of water.

Keywords:   water, watershed development programmes, watershed management, informal water market, groundwater markets, water conservation, irrigation
