    Sea-level rise and coastal wetlands: impacts and costs

    Description
    This report analyses the impacts and costs of a predicted 1 metre sea-level rise on coastal wetland areas in East Asia and the Pacific, as well as North Africa and the Middle East. It discusses the importance of these areas and the causes of wetland loss and then goes on to provide figures for the amount of predicted wetland loss in a number of regions. It concludes by describing the economic losses that this wetland loss would cause. This report was published by the World Bank in 2012.

    Shifting waterscapes: explaining basin closure in the Lower Krishna Basin, South India

    Description
    This study investigates the main causes of the closure of the Lower Krishna River Basin in South India: the decrease in the surface water inflow into the lower basin due to water development in the upper basin and uncontrolled irrigation development of private groundwater abstraction. This study was published by IWMI in 2007.

    Smallholders and sustainable wells - a retrospect: participatory groundwater management in Andhra Pradesh (India)

    Description
    This report discusses the value of the participatory groundwater management (PGM) package as a method of sustainable management of groundwater resources, particularly in relation to the large number of farmers in India who have little or no access to irrigation. The various components of PGM are described as well as the path to implementation, the responses from the people and envirionment (with case studies of responses from Chandrasagarvagu, Thundlavagu, Bhavanasi and Mandavagu in the district of Andhra Pradesh) and the sustainability, relevance and upscaling of such a programme.
