Abstract: "River basin closure has developed into a sizeable challenge of extreme importance. Over the past 50 years, many of the river basins that support the world’s breadbaskets have already or will soon become closed basins. Like the basins themselves, the world’s eye on this critical issue seems to be closing at a time when it can least afford to look away. Applying the findings of a groundwater use case from India, this article sheds some light on this blind spot in water resource management to see what is going on downstream in the great sub-continent."
