    National water mission - vol II

    India Water Portal, 2008
    Draft prepared by the Ministry of Water Resources. It estimates that currently about 83 percent of developed water resources is used by Irrigation sector alone in our country. This may get progressively reduced to about 75 percent in future, due to increased demand of other sectors. The overall efficiency in most irrigation systems is low and in the range of 35 percent to 40 percent.

    Conservation Management of Rivers and Wetlands Under Climate Change: A Synthesis

    2011
    Dams, diversion of water, invasive species, overharvesting and pollution are degrading rivers and wetlands. Climate change may exacerbate impacts of these threats through predicted reductions in rainfall and increased temperature, decreasing flow and altering timing and variability of flow regimes.

    Using adaptation tipping points to prepare for climate change and sea level rise: a case study in the Netherlands

    Wiley Online Library, 2010
    Studies on the impact of climate change and sea level rise usually rake climate scenarios as their starting point. To support long-term water management planning int he Netherlands, this paper starts at the opposite end of the effect chain. The study refers to three aspects of water management:
