Rainwater harvesting, a “soft path” approach towards water management, cannot be advocated in isolation to tackle water scarcity.

A drop in available water for irrigation is one of the important challenges that countries will face in the coming years. This could create a severe impact on agriculture and food production. This threat is far more serious in countries such as India due to the rapid growth in population as well as overexploitation of available water resources. Rather than centralised solutions, small scale solutions that are cost effective, efficient and environmentally sustainable in the long run, are being proposed to deal with water scarcity.
