Beyond the Rhetoric of Integrated Water Resources Management: The Case of the Tungabhadra Sub-basin

Although Integrated Water Resources Management, as a concept, has gained currency in the global discourse on water, it does not seem to have made much headway in the Indian context.

As a result, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh have their own set of different water governance regimes - water policies, laws and legislations, institutions and practices - with relatively little interaction between them.
