    22. 22. DEMAND-SIDE MEASURES • improving ‘irrigation efficiency’ alone does not necessarily mean real water- resource saving – concomitant need to constrain/reduce irrigated area, reduce consumptive groundwater use and increase irrigation water productivity • SUPPLY-SIDE MEASURES aquifer recharge enhancement is valuable for community mobilisation and for specific water-supply problems – but in isolation is never a panacea for resource imbalance GROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT INTERVENTIONSGROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT INTERVENTIONS local demand/supply side measures – no simple pancealocal demand/supply side measures – no simple pancea
    23. 23. LOCAL GROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT PROVISIONSLOCAL GROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT PROVISIONS appropriate balanceappropriate balance between communitybetween community participation and publicparticipation and public administrationadministration (facilitation, use rights,(facilitation, use rights, charging ,etc)charging ,etc) move social behaviour from ‘destructive competition for dwindling storage’ to ‘productive use of available recharge’

    26. 26. • uncertain water-futures due to effects of land-use and climate change, and varying economic drivers • groundwater use rights should be subject to periodic review – with ‘restriction zones’ established as needed • user participation essential – with full information dissemination/transparency to counteract corruption • much improved measurement/monitoring required to refine resource evaluation and provide evidence for management decision-making • finance of agreed programme of management measures (demand management, supply augmentation and crop changes as appropriate) GROUNDWATER RESOURCESGROUNDWATER RESOURCES key instruments and tools for adaptive managementkey instruments and tools for adaptive management

GROUNDWATER AND THE CITYGROUNDWATER AND THE CITY ‘‘urbanisation impacts on groundwater’ andurbanisation impacts on groundwater’ and ‘groundwater impacts the urban infrastructure’‘groundwater impacts the urban infrastructure’ ‘‘predictable’ but ‘rarely predicted’predictable’ but ‘rarely predicted’ without planning – “one person’s solution becomes the anotherwithout planning – “one person’s solution becomes the another person’s problem”person’s problem” The Integrating Element
    31. 31. • groundwater use much more significant in overall water-supply than generally appreciated, and it forms ‘invisible link’ between various facets of infrastructure • much water use/effluent disposal is unregulated or ‘illegal’ – thus little discussed by infrastructure sector • urban groundwater affects ‘everybody’ but often responsibility of no ‘body’ – institutional vacuum • broad stakeholder involvement needed through ‘standing review panel’ or ‘stakeholder consortium’ - but who should take management lead ? (municipal authority, water resource regulatory agency, public health ministry, water utility, chamber of commerce, etc) URBAN GROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT filling the ‘institutional vacuum’
