As India Continues To Face Drought, Water Must Be At Center Of Country’s Development Agenda

New York Times: India’s Water Crisis
Editorial Board

“Some 330 million people — about one quarter of India’s population — are reeling from a drought that has turned vast areas of the subcontinent into a dust bowl, withering crops, and forcing farmers from their lands. … [Prime Minister Narendra] Modi’s most urgent task is to help those suffering from the drought. He must also place water at the center of his development agenda. A growing population means that India’s water needs will only increase, even as climate change will most likely make water scarcer” (5/3).
