Abstract Water scarcity is possibly to pose the greatest challenge on account of its increased demand coupled with shrinking supplies due to over utilisation and pollution. The assessment, efficient use and conservation of water, therefore, become necessary to ensure development. The share of agricultural sector in total water utilisation is much higher than other sectors. Available water resources are degrading rapidly. To consider water scarcity in future, there is need to encourage watershed development, rainwater harvesting, water recycling and reuse, and conjunctive use of water for sustaining water supply in long run.
