Water can not be produced but conserving water is equivalent to production of water. Rajasthan has worked on two side water conservation theories. (i) Supply side (ii) Demand side water Supply Side Water Conservation Activities;- Harvesting the available surplus rainfall runoff by Efficient use of existing resources ,Water Harvesting, Artificial Ground water recharging,Increase in use of treated water,Demand Side Water Conservation Activities;- Various interventions taken for demand side water conservations are as under Diversification in cropping pattern,Micro irrigation system,IEC activities to use water optimally.
