ABSTRACT
The article presents the comments of Asit K. Biswas, visiting professor at Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, on water scarcity and management. He says water crisis is not because of a scarcity of water but because of the current and past terrible management practices. According to him, water must have a price, as that is the only way people, and industry, will use it prudently.
