The book analyzes five major bilateral
treaty regimes on the South Asian subcontinent: between
India and Bangladesh for the Ganges River; between India and
Nepal for the Kosi, Gandaki, and Mahakali rivers; and,
between India and Pakistan for the Indus River. It explains
the background, and legal regimes of these international
rivers in the context of the serious challenges to the water
resources of the subcontinent, posed by significant
population increases, urbanization, industrialization, and
environmental degradation. International lawyers, and
natural resource specialists will find this book to be
useful and informative.
