A suburb of Agra, Nehar ka Nagla, found itself without access to potable water. The solution came from within the slum and it wasn't water tankers.

Historically, Agra has had decentralized water systems that were derived from a riverine core and supplemented by numerous lakes, wells and baolis (step wells). The system was a synthesis of geography, excellent Mughal fluvial engineering and an involved citizenry. Unfortunately,  much has been lost over the years.

After food security it is time to think seriously about water security. The Government of India has tried since 1947 through various policies to ensure water security. But in India over one lakh people die of water borne diseases annually. It is mainly the rural people who do not get safe drinking water. Access to safe and clean drinking water in sufficient quantity is still a challenge for some people. Recognising this National Rural Drinking Water Programme encourages the state governments to devolve management of rural water supply schemes to Panchayti Raj Institutions (PRI).

News this week: India moves up on the Global Hunger Index, Churu on its way to total sanitation and Phailin affected areas face drinking water stress.
