Sri Lanka has 51 Acts  over 40 Agencies dealing with water leading to duplication, confusion and inaction-  fertile ground for corruption.  Six ministries handle water functions leading to  sectoral tensions and misallocation. An attempt a decade ago to establish a Comprehensive Water Policy  and  an Apex Body  to regulate/allocate  backstopped by an umbrella law  could not carry with it public support or political commitment. The policy articulated was  comprehensive assuming a one off and not as a dynamic or evolving.
