Example text

Based on the relevant contemporary discourses but most of all on the Indian context, the topic is presented as having three interlinked dimensions: the right to water as a human right; water in terms of property rights; and water rights. Hence there are different kinds of right relating to water and they partly converge, but partly also stand in opposition to each other in the sense that they represent competing uses. The different dimensions will be generally portrayed and analysed in Chapters V, VI, and VII, respectively.

Planning, maintenance, and various other tasks related to the infrastructure of the larger city area now have a coordination potential, not least in terms of access to and supply of water. In parallel with the process of merging Greater Bangalore, the ‘Greater Bangalore Water and Sanitation Supply Project’ was implemented. The main aims were to provide piped water from the River Kaveri (Eng. Cauvery) to all of the former municipalities – where most of the inhabitants used to rely on groundwater extraction – and to reorganise the finance and management of the service.

This had to do partly with my attempt to pinpoint some interface issues between the urban, peri-urban and rural. I early found it important to take a larger perspective, not only to focus on village or city level; it became obvious and visible how the urban and the rural are inter-connected spatially and time-wise (with the growing peri-urban areas in between) and that there was a need to treat water rights issues likewise. Since Bangalore is growing so fast that former rural sites would become peri-urban, and even fall inside the administrative city limits, within the time of the study, it fitted well for the purpose.
