  • This book explores the development potential of the Gange- Brahmaputra river systems in context of Nepal- India and Bangladesh. Employing the up to date data available so far, Dr. Upreti points out how the vast potential of Himalayan river waters has become a victim of ¬†vicious political tangle. Providing an indepth study of the patterns of co-operation, and problems and issues involved in the sharing of the rivers waters of mutual benefits, the author highlights how the water diplomacy pursued by the riparian states has politicized the issues and created hurdles. The fear psychosis of the smaller states vis-a vis India and narrow interests of the ruling elites of these countries have made the optimum utilization of the water resources impossible. The book is the first comprehensive attempt to evolve a detailed ¬†understanding of the issues involved in the quest for understanding of the issues involved in the quest for cooperation among the basin countries on mutual advantageous basis.
