Abstract: The last three decades have seen the gradual erosion of the state's perceived role as a promoter of development and as a steward of natural resources, including water. Both communitarians and neo-liberals coming from different theoretical and methodological angles have converged in their critique of the state. While the communitarians argue for supporting, what are perceived as, old traditions of sustainable community-based resource management, the neo-liberals argue for market-based mechanisms for efficient resource allocation and use. Despite these critiques the state remains an important player in the field of resource management, especially that of water, in developing countries such as India.
