The Forum for Policy Dialogue on Water Conflicts in India (Forum to be brief) is a network of individuals and organisations who are interested in engaging with water conflicts in India. The Forum has been in existence since 2004, and so far has completed two phases of its work. The first phase involved the understanding of water conflicts through documentation and the focus of the second phase was on resolving and preventing water conflicts. Currently the Forum is in its third phase and its main focus is the backstopping of water conflicts. The Forum has taken up the Mahanadi basin to study key thematic issues like environmental flow, agriculture and industrial water use and conflicts around groundwater. At present more than 250 members are associated with the Forum.
