Abstract

The customary practice of meeting urban water deficit through supply augmentation by tapping distant and multiple-use water sources often disturbs prevailing sectoral allocation and causes inter-sectoral water conflicts. The common prescription for resolving such conflicts involves market-based approach to inter-sectoral water allocation. Utilizing both primary and secondary information pertaining to the water sector of Hyberabad city, India, this paper investigates the kind of policy changes and institutional conditions necessary to ensure the economic viability of market-based solution to intersectoral allocation problems in an urban context.
