Given that South Asia is fast becoming a water-stressed region and that population and economic growth makes the situation more challenging, an integrated management of water resources becomes even more important. Hydro-politics in GBM Basin: The Case of Bangladesh-India Water Relations focuses on the water management issues of Bangladesh and India. Based on hard data as well as wide consultation with a large number of stakeholders in India and Bangladesh, examines the issues carefully and attempts to suggest a path to deal with the challenges. Apart from covering the economic, ecological and political (domestic and international) issues, it deals with treaty implications from International water related case studies.
