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.
