Dear Ian, Love the comment - Frequently ‘one group’s solution tends to become another group’s problem’ -because it is so true! And that definitely leads to the 'need for groundwater considerations to be integrated when making decisions on infrastructure planning and investment'. However like so many urban issues across the world, one size does not fit all. Just as the top down integrated approach is vital, I feel that good practices, great potential for celebrating water exists in the by-lanes of every community in my city. It may be worth exploring if and how with the right political will, every community can be sufficient and even surplus in water matters thus forming an indispensable link in this chain of integrated management.
