Hydro-Politics in GBM Basin: The Case of Bangladesh-India Water Relations
Nitya Nanda, Abu Saleh Khan and Krishna Dwivedi
Given that South Asia is fast becoming a water-stressed region and that population and economic growth make the situation more challenging, an integrated management of water resources becomes even more crucial. Hydro-politics in GBM Basin: the case of Bangladesh–India water relations focuses on the water management issues between Bangladesh and India.
The book examines the issues carefully and attempts to suggest a path to deal with the challenges based on hard data and wide consultation with a large number of stakeholders in India and Bangladesh. Apart from covering the economic, ecological, and political (domestic and international) issues, it deals with treaty implications from international water-related case studies.
