Understanding the causes of poor sustainability includes an assessment of the political economy of India in terms of the broader socioeconomic, governance, and political dynamics within which the water sector operates. It can also be related to the way in which groups with common economic or political interests influence the development of the sector, for example, the promotion of, or resistance to, sector reforms and decentralisation of service delivery. As such, these country studies look beyond a simple description of the situation and towards broader processes of decentralisation and political leadership, in an attempt to unpack what has gone right or, as in many cases, what has gone wrong,
within the rural water sub-sector. [authors abstract]

This is part of the Triple-S (Sustainable Services at Scale) Water services that last-project.
