    For millennia, India has been using surface storages and gravity flow to irrigate its crops. During the last 40 years, however, India has witnessed a decline in gravity flow irrigation and the rise of a booming ?water-scavenging? irrigation economy through millions of small, private tube wells. For India, groundwater has become at once critical and threatened. Climatic change will act as a force-multiplier; it will enhance the criticality of groundwater for drought-proofing agriculture and simultaneously multiply the threat to the resource.

    This publication describes the experience of a number of transition countries in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union with crafting regulatory frameworks for irrigation water users’ organizations. It also seeks to distil a number of key regulatory requirements. As a result, this study serves as a design/drafting manual for policymakers and for drafters of legislation on water users’ organizations.
