About the Project

The Himalayan Rivers of the Ganges and the Brahmaputra have created extensive systems of inland waterways in the region consisting of Bangladesh, Bhutan, India and Nepal - BBIN region. For centuries, these inland waterways were inter-connected but due to the new drawing of political boundaries there is disconnect among themselves. This has resulted in poor institutional development for the management of these traditional inland waterways.

The current political discourse on trans-boundary cooperation among these countries has set the stage for institutional analysis of policies, laws and regulations governing inland waterways in the BBIN countries. This can lead to an alternative policy discourse for enabling reform measures on governing these inland waterways and will help deliberation on the need for trans-boundary cooperation among BBIN countries on the subject of inland waterways.
