This volume collects essays from academics and practitioners from a diversity of areas and perspectives in order to discuss water security at various levels and to illuminate the central idea of water security: its focus on the individual. Beginning with the big picture, this book aims to illustrate the depth of the water security crisis and its interconnections with other aspects of societal development. It particularly draws a connection to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and discusses that challenges faced in meeting the 17 sustainability development goals (SDG) by the year 2030. Moving from international to domestic and community perspectives, this book provides a unique analysis of issues and solutions to the water issues we face today in light of the ever looming global changes brought on by climate change.
Over the past few decades the recognition of our common need for water has increased, as policymakers have sought to place more focus on the individual within policy. After the recognition of water and sanitation as a fundamental human right by the United Nations General Assembly in 2010, there is increasing recognition of the individual as the building block for the struggle for water security. This reality also intersects with adverse impacts of global climate change, and the book responds to the broader question: will clean and safe water be available where we need it and when we need it in the future?
This unique survey analyzes the interconnections between water and human security in India and its region. In India, population growth, development, and modernization have brought water policy to the top of the agenda of national and local governments. Transboundary water sharing, dams, and projects to provide water have become strategic geopolitical tools. Water is a key issue in the India-Pakistan-Kashmir dispute, and has strained the relations between India and Bangladesh. If the availability of water may cause conflict, it is also essential for human development and environmental sustainability. Cooperation between states is needed to increase economic development, and the book argues that the importance of water for human security calls for the creation of a security community, that is: a stable political alliance, which will contribute to peace and development in the region, with India playing a key role in water leadership.
