Description: The book addresses key issues related to the current questions that are important in the plans for linking various rivers in So—fith Asia. The book tries to present views from both sides—for and against—and leave the reader to make his/her individual opinion and not swayed by either academic or non Governmental views. Extrapolations have been made on possible implication of global warming and climate change on the water sector in the subcontinent. As far as possible efforts have been made to make the reading simple by keeping out high level technical words. The primary question that is being addressed in this book is: do we want a large number of individual and mighty river basins or a single SARC river basin?
