This chapter situates water law and policy in its broader context, starting with the question of water availability and water scarcity. It discusses the context within which issues of access to water and water use arise, and introduces the links between poverty and water that underlie the overall analysis carried out in the book. The second section introduces the context for Indian water law in its national and international dimensions. It discusses the place and relevance of international water law as well as international water policy instruments. The chapter further examines the general links between water law and poverty in India, and the links between ongoing water law reform and poverty eradication.
