Urban Water Systems in India

Typologies and Hypotheses

Urban water and waste water management have not been relatively well understood in India. The Indian urban space has been considered in an undifferentiated manner, which ignores the specificities deriving from different stages of urban development, the sources of water, as also the diverse nature of aquifers catering for urban settlements in different parts of the country. This paper advances a series of hypotheses that can serve as an initial analytical framework and outlines a way forward for urban water systems, which could provide rich terrain for further research.

This paper is based on a study done for the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations and Global Green Growth Institute. Many thanks are due to Isher Ahluwalia, Montek Ahluwalia, Arunabha Ghosh, Sandeep Joshi, Sayali Joshi, Rochi Khemka, Sunita Narain, and Tushaar Shah for their inputs, which have greatly enriched the paper.
