Sustainable water resources management for agricultural development in the humid alluvial region of Eastern India

Sustainable water resources management for agricultural development in the humid alluvial region of Eastern India

Proceedings of International Conference on Water Resources Planning in a Changing World: IV113-IV123

Eastern India, with its humid alluvial plains such as North Bihar, has large agricultural potential, but its actual performance has declined due to population-growth related alterations to the hydrological regime. Various engineering measures carried out over the last 40 years have not achieved anticipated improvements and have even proved counterproductive.
