Abstract

Iran faces a serious and worsening water crisis, and water conservation by its farmers is rightly seen as crucial to any
resolution. Since the hierarchically-bestowed large-scale dams and canals have delivered much less than was confidently expected, and since the individualistically-operated boreholes have resulted in the now widespread phenomenon of competitive deepening (groundwater depletion), these behavioural changes have turned out to be major contributors to Iran’s looming water super-crisis.
