Although the purpose of this study was confined to the problems and potentials of water resources (both drinking and irrigation) in the Bundelkhand Region in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, India, it does, nevertheless, provide a comprehensive view on the region's geology, geography, forests, land use, agriculture, and mining. In this context the focus is on the possible detrimental effects for the region's water resources and climate. The original aim of the research was to study the existing potential of traditional water harvesting and storage systems, forests, rain patterns et cetera in selected districts, and to prepare a document on the above aspects with an emphasis on traditional time-tested systems for drinking water. The researchers were also required to identify issues for improvement.
