Sustainable Water Management Model

The sustainable water management can be achieved by using appropriate techniques of water management to improve water productivity, and availability over an area for irrigation. A conceptualized model for sustainable water management could be visualized with its three constituent parts, the users, available water and environment all represented by circle and interacting each other (Singh et al., 2009).

The constituent parts interact in such a way that users are affected and affecting the available water in a closed system of environment which is affecting both the users and available water and vice versa. The circle represented for user is expanding because of increasing population and the other circles remain same. The circle represented for available water remains same if assumed that quantity of available fresh water remains same in hydrologic cycle over a long period of duration. The circle represented for environment remains same under sustainable condition.
