This paper shows how relatively simple Geographical Information Systems (GIS) techniques can be used to highlight water scarcity problems for a rural area of southern India and provide important information that can be applied to decision making. It will demonstrate how that even at local level, GIS can be an effective tool. The Working Paper will also demonstrate how the SWAT model can be set up using the available data and illustrate the possibilities it presents in contributing essential hydrological information to the decision-making process.
