Transboundary water cooperation, water sharing, governance & policy
30 July 20
Misinformation and fake news on transboundary water issues in South Asia can negatively impact long-standing cooperation efforts. There is an urgent need to ramp up efforts to tackle such information disorder on shared waters in the region.
While the knowledge system on shared waters issues in South Asia is evolving, evidence suggests limited engagement of these knowledge with the policy and practice on shared waters. Quite often politics, including national and sub-national political priorities in basin states, determine the shared waters policy and practice.
