Details

The South Asia Water Governance Programme (SAWGP) delivers better management of the three primary Himalayan rivers (the Ganges, Indus and Brahmaputra) shared by seven countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Nepal and Pakistan). The programme brings these countries together to tackle trans-boundary challenges, such as flooding, water for irrigation and maximising hydropower potential, which are common to all countries sharing these rivers.
