Opis: Droughts and Integrated Water Resource Management in South Asia

"Droughts and Integrated Water Resource Management in South Asia", highlights that while available water supplies can be quantified, it is not so with droughts. Droughts are variously experienced, politically inspired, socially constituted and arise essentially from the monopoly of available water. Countering technocratic and naturalistic treatments of droughts by mainstream professionals, the contributors argue that the focus of redressal has to be on the political struggle for equitable sharing rather than the creation of large reservoirs that may again be monopolized by vested interests to generate continuous 'droughts'.This volume attempts to: understand the concept of drought; map the diversity in drought situations across South Asia; identify responses to drought; outline viable options for more integrated approaches to drought policies and mitigation strategies; and, initiate a process of dialogue on emerging drought issues. Integrated water resources management acquires special meaning in the South Asian context, where resolution of some of the most pressing water problems requires regional co-operation. The central concern is the livelihood perspective of drought, the political economy of drought relief and dominance of supply-side approaches. This book aims to sensitize policy makers and practitioners to the need for initiating institutional changes for drought management in their respective countries.I: BACKDROP The Context and Problematique - Jasveen Jairath and Vishwa Ballabh Elusive Rains and Parched Lands: Situating Drought in Colonial India - Sanjay Sharma Gender and Drought in South Asia: Dominant Constructions and Alternate Propositions - Seema Kulkarni and Nagmani Rao An Alternative Approach to Drought and Drought-proofing - Suhas Paranjape and K J Joy II: COUNTRY OVERVIEW Understanding Drought-Implications, Strategies and Policies in Sri Lanka - Ranjith Premalal De Silva Incidence, Impacts and Management of Droughts in India: An Overview - Katar Singh and Vishwa Ballabh Scarcity in Abundance: Issues of Droughts in Bangladesh - Khandaker Mainuddin and Sarder Shafiqul Alam Droughts in Pakistan-A Socio-political Perspective - Asaf Sarwar III: CASE STUDIES Drought and Public Policy in Tamilnadu,India - A Rajagopal, N Jayakumar and J R Bashyam Johad Versus Watershed: Case Study of Tarun Bharat Sangh's Approach - Ganesh Pangare Converting Calamity into Oppurtunity: Natural Resource Enhancement through Participatory Drought Relief Programme - Srinivas Mudrakartha Management of Scarcity and Scarcity of Mahabubnagar District, Andhra Pradesh, India: A Case Study - Jasveen Jairath and Muhammad Mustafa
