Besides India, there are a few other countries like Mexico, Spain, Pakistan, Bangladesh and China which also make intensive use of groundwater. This highlight reviews groundwater institutions and policies in these countries, with a special focus on the interlinkages between energy and groundwater.

It is this lack of energy accounting and resistance to metering that is at the heart of the invidious energy-irrigation nexus in India.
