This article traces the evolution of water scarcity narratives in the Indian drylands. In doing so, it shows how the politics of water scarcity has remained undergirded by a persistent and ubiquitous framing of climate-driven scarcity framings, which predates widespread recognition of anthropogenic climate change as a pressing concern. Using a combination of existing sources and analysis of key national and state level policy documents, I show how scarcity-focused narratives have remained stable over time and across the range of policies and sectors.
