ThoughSpace Episode 13: Navigating the India-China conversation on the Brahmaputra

6 April 2017
A discussion between Nimmi Kurian and Richa Bansal

The Brahmaputra is a river of great strategic significance to both China and India at many levels, and therefore contentious, especially given that China is the source country for it. In the 13th episode of CPR’s podcast ThoughtSpace, Richa Bansal talks to Nimmi Kurian to deconstruct the importance of the Brahmaputra for both countries, understand the reasons for the tensions, and possible ways forward for effective water management.

Kurian is an Associate Professor at CPR with particular expertise in the India-China water dialogue and transborder governance.
