Many developing countries depend on their agricultural production to ensure food security. However, along with agriculture, there are many other sectors that impose demands on basin water resources. Declining water supplies and growing demands require better management decisions in water allocation. This paper describes the current water demand and supply situation in a rural river basin of a developing country and analyzes several solutions to overcome the water allocation issues.
