As India attempts to embark on an ambitious economic growth trajectory, the newly created water ministry will be unable to combat the country’s increasing water stress if water security is dealt with in isolation. Water is not only about a resource for consumption or agricultural and industrial use but also about the health of the people, long term environment and ecological welfare of the nation and is closely tied to the economy of the country. While we put into place numerous measures to combat our water stress, it is only beneficial that we consider all examples and experiences from around the world, including those from China that has begun these battles and has had a few successes we might learn from.
