Addressing the main currents in the discourse of conservation of water resources, the present volume titled Water Resource Management: The Social Capital Perspective examines the global issue of ‘water’ especially efforts of the local communities and their participation in sustainable management of water resources with the mediation of social capital. Perfectly suited to the track of the time, the volume touches upon the themes that are crucial to problematization of the issue. Based on insights from the field, it critically examines the linkages and dynamics of interactions involved in water resource management. The volume provides inventive theoretical perspective of social capital and empirical insights on water resource management. In pursuit of the paradigm of social capital, it analyzes the principles and practices adopted by the village communities in water resource management. The phrase has attained considerable international currency in social science literature especially in the scholarly works of Pierre Bourdieu, James Coleman, Robert Putnam, Michael Woolcock, Ben Fine, Deepa Narayan among others. It is widely used as a theoretical framework in analyzing communitarian initiatives including conservation and management of water resource. The book has got the potential for a wider readership across disciplines – sociology, anthropology, political science, geography, economics, environmental studies, and development studies. That apart, the volume will be an essential reading for anyone working in the field of community based natural resource management in India including policymakers and practitioners, donor agencies, and civil society organizations. This is also a meaningful text for policymakers and development practitioners engaged in community and conservation of water resources. Rooted in empirical and conceptual insights, the book is destined to serve as an essential guide to one of the most challenging discourses of our times.
