CUSA’s visiting fellow, Dr. Vandana Asthana, has authored a publication entitled, Water Security in India: Hope, Despair, and the Challenges of Human Development. Asthana’s work is co-authored by her research colleague, A. C. Shukla, and also features a foreward by CUSA’s own Director, Dr. Richard Matthew.
The publication addresses and analyzes the challenges that contemporary India faces if it is to create a water-secure world, and providing a hopeful, though guarded, road-map to a future in which India’s life-giving and life-sustaining fresh water resources are safe, clean, plentiful, and available to all, secured for the people in a peaceful and ecologically sustainable manner.
