This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on water management problems in India. The findings reveal that very little is known about the nature and magnitude of water scarcity, the causes for such scarcity situation, and the kind of interventions that would be needed to avert the crisis. This chapter highlights a new water management paradigm and suggests that the best approach to deal with India's water management problems starts with generating a realistic scenario of future water demands and supplies, and assessing the type, nature, and magnitude of scarcity.

Keywords: water management; India; water scarcity; future water demands; interventions; policy implications
