China's Major Dam on Brahmaputra Raises Concerns

G Plus News | December 01, 2020 12:42 hrs

China has announced its decision to build a hydropower project on the Brahmaputra River (Yarlung Zangbo) as per the Chinese government-owned newspaper, Global Times. 


The measure has been forwarded in the proposals for formulating the country’s 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-25).

The initiative has raised concerns from the Indian side of things. As a lower riparian state with considerable established user rights to the waters
of the trans-border rivers, the Indian government had earlier urged the Chinese side to ensure that the interests of downstream states are not harmed by any activities in upstream areas.
