Water resources management is receiving increasing attention worldwide due to the considerable challenges that face the quantitative and qualitative aspects of water. These challenges are attributed to a multitude of factors, including the significant increase in population, urbanization and environmental degradation. Such factors are more apparent in the South Asian Sub-continent (Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan) than many other parts of the world. Moreover, the problems of the Sub-continent are compounded by the fact that it encompasses some 20 major international rivers. As a result, the Sub-continent has had to deal with some of the most difficult disputes over international rivers, while at the same time it has been successful in designing some interesting methods for cooperation.;This book focuses on the hydro-politics and legal regime of international water in the Sub-continent. It discusses the bilateral treaty regimes between India and Pakistan, India and Nepal, India and Bangladesh over some of the major shared rivers between them. This book also provides an overview of main issues and common elements regarding shared rivers among these countries.
