Comparing the strategic priorities and policy principles of the World Commission on Dams, the sustainability guidelines and sustainability assessment protocol of the International Hydropower Association, and the performance standards of the World Bank

The study area is a part of Kagna river basin in the Gulburga district of Karnataka, India. Remote sensing and GIS techniques have proved to be efficient tools in drainage delineation and their updation. These updated drainages have been used for the morphometric analysis. The morphometric analysis was carried out through measurement of linear, areal and relief aspects of basins.

With over 263 water basins shared by countries worldwide, cooperating over water is not an option, it is necessity. And it is pays to share. It

The Ecological Limits of Hydrologic Alteration (ELOHA) is a new framework offering a flexible, scientifically defensible compromise for broadly assessing environmental flow needs when in-depth studies cannot be performed for all rivers in a region.

This IWMI-CPWF study assesses India

As a region of great geographic, ecological, social, and cultural
diversity, the Himalayas are a true global heritage. They are
also the source of some of Asia

This report provides an overview of the range of key livelihoods and production systems in the Blue Nile Basin. It is highlighting their relative dependence on, and vulnerability to, water resources and water-related ecosystem services in the catchments. It also elucidates current water and land related policies and institutions.

This report aims to evaluate the impacts of climate change on both hydrologic regimes and water resources of the Upper Blue Nile River Basin in Ethiopia where observed hydrologic data are limited. The downstream countries of the Nile River Basin are sensitive to the variability of runoff from the Ethiopian part of the basin.

New studies, committees and a tag of national river. Will it help? the government has decided to declare the Ganga a national river, following campaigns from several quarters to preserve its cultural and religious significance. A High Powered Ganga River Basin Authority, to be chaired by the prime minister, will be set up as an empowered planning, implementing and monitoring

The recent Kosi floods have proved once again that inadequate control measures have been responsible for the recurring disasters. Typically flood control and riverine studies focus on hydrological information, whereas a much more integrated approach that pays attention to specific morphological factors is required.
