Abstract: In South Asia concerns about water scarcity have been mounting for some time, particularly in rural areas where food productivity critically depends on irrigation. Sustainable water consumption is therefore a key development goal, otherwise any strategy that aims to guarantee food security or tackle rural poverty will ultimately fail. This is, however, a particularly big challenge as there are many factors that influence water supply and demand; this means that it is often difficult to decide what strategic approach should be taken to make sure that water sources are used efficiently and sustainably.
