Lack of awareness among all water users is the biggest obstacle to

Lack of political will
Lack of political will to combat vested interests is also an important

farmers and other water users prevail over the water needs of ecosystems.

Lack of human and financial resources causes ecosystems not to be
taken into account in planning and development.
