Description:

Access to safe and sufficient supply of water is a basic human need. As the pace of urbanization and industrialization increases, lack of safe and sustainable water is becoming one of the most serious deprivations afflicting people and a source of conflict. If peace is not the absence of violence but the presence of well-being and justice some of the toughest challenges in coming years will be in the sphere of water.

What are some of the creative ways in which these challenges can be addressed?
What can we learn from the principles which governed traditional water harvesting and management practices in India?
What precisely is the nature of conflict between local communities and industry? What does the law of the land have to say on this matter?
In what ways would the terms of the discourse have to be reframed in order to make room for the kind of dialog that can foster win-win situations?
