Duration Objectives Time line

IWMI-CP project - NRLP analysis

Phase I

India’s Water Futures Analysis

April 2005-

April 2006

Analysis of NRLP- How adequate is it?

January 2006-

March 2007

Phase III

Why another Water Futures analysis? Time line

  • NRLP is based on Water Futures projections of NCIWRD commission

  • Hardened positions with inadequate analysis:

    • Against NRLP- says there is inadequate analysis of alternative options

    • For NRLP- says that considering the magnitude of the water crisis, NRLP is the only option

  • Key Missing Issues:

    • What is the magnitude of crisis itself?

    • Why interlinking was chosen as the best option?

    • What is the scope of the alternatives?
