Conflict Management in Rural Water Sources. - December-11-09
Water resources depletion and rising demand on limited water supplies result in putting at risk some of the water related investments, thereby creating conflicts. Conflicts however, occur in the presence of local institutions such as village councils, ward development committees and district councils which are empowered by legislation and encouraged by policies to undertake resolution and management in their areas of jurisdiction. But still water use conflicts continue leading to open fighting, property damages and in some places have led to blood shedding.
