The research focuses on how farmers in the rural areas of Maharashtra, in India, are experiencing processes of agrarian transformation and water re-allocation. More specifically, it focuses on changes in tenure and labour relations, consumption and migration patterns as well as on people’s experiences of and relations to their environment. The analysis is conducted from a feminist critical perspective largely inspired by feminist political ecology studies, and aims at assessing implications for modalities and scales of water governance, but also at strenghtening feminist collaborations that can contribute to inspire and create more equitable and sustainable socionatural futures.
