China to build downstream dam on Brahmaputra river

Date: 01 December 2020 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • China is reportedly planning to construct a major hydropower project on Brahmaputra river in Tibet. The proposal for this project was presented in the 14th Five-Year Plan, and the construction will begin from next year.
  • This project has raised concerns for the South Asian countries India and Bangladesh. The Indian government has urged China to keep the interests of the downstream areas and make sure that the trans-border rivers' usage rights are not harmed by the upstream areas.
  • As a lower riparian State with considerable established user rights to the waters of the trans-border rivers, the Indian government has consistently conveyed its views and concerns to the Chinese authorities and has urged them to ensure that the interests of downstream States are not harmed by any activities in upstream areas.
