Strengthening Transparency and Access to Information on Transboundary Rivers in South Asia

Strengthening Transparency and Access to Information on Transboundary Rivers in South Asia is a major new report that examines the availability and accessibility of data and information related to three transboundary rivers in Bangladesh, India and Nepal. The study, which is a result of a 15-month assessment conducted with support from the Skoll Global Threats Fund (SGTF) and in partnership with the World Resources Institute (WRI) and civil society organizations in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal, highlights barriers preventing the sharing of water and climate information between governments, among departments and ministries within governments, and with the public and provides regional and country-level findings and recommendations to improve access to information on transboundary water issues in South Asia.
