India - China Water Dispute: An Overview

Dr. Akanksha [7]

Abstract: This paper delves into the water dispute between India and China, focusing on the Brahmaputra River, a transboundary water resource shared by these two nations. The study explores the geopolitical, environmental, and historical factors contributing to the dispute, with Chinas dam - building activities and strategic control over the rivers upper reaches being key points of contention. The paper also discusses the potential impacts of these activities on downstream countries, particularly India. Despite the ongoing tensions, the study highlights recent cooperative efforts between the two countries to address the dispute, suggesting a positive shift in their relations. However, it emphasizes the need for continued dialogue, transparency, and mutual understanding to achieve a sustainable and equitable resolution. The paper concludes by underscoring the importance of proactive and innovative strategies to foster more cohesive water relations amidst the challenges posed by climate change, increasing water demand, and geopolitical complexities.
