ONLINE: Scarcity, Abundance and the Human Dimension: Analyzing urban-rural water conflict in India

Thursday, November 12, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

Event Navigation

National governance reform is the central challenge within the Indian water sector. However, national initiatives on legal reform underestimate the challenges of place-specific water issues in the Indian context. This webinar presents case studies on rural-urban transfers of water in large metropolitan centers, highlighting the importance of governance reform and the centrality of politics in the re-allocation of water from agricultural to urban-industrial use.

Guest Speaker: Bharat Punjabi Research Fellow, Global Cities Institute and Lecturer, Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy

Presented by the Canada India Recearch Centre for Learning and Engagement
