Governance // Securing Food, Energy, and Water in India

By Melissa M. Rohde. The food, energy, and water sectors are inextricably linked. However, existing governance landscapes often make it difficult for governments to address and adapt to new and continuing challenges in securing food, energy, and water. This disconnect is often driven by a fragmented governance landscape with strong sectorial boundaries that segregate responsibilities, thereby hindering coordination and creating legal inconsistencies between sectors. These challenges exist in many countries around the world, but are most pronounced in India where more than one-tenth of the Earth’s population resides.

India’s fragmented governance hinders its ability to sufficiently secure the food, energy, and water needs for their population. Endemic malnutrition, frequent power cuts, poor water quality, and rapid groundwater depletion are some examples of the ongoing challenges that India faces. To address these challenges and the policies that constrain them comprehensively, India would benefit from a more cohesive governance structure.
