Heading East

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on problems related to governance, infrastructure development, and knowledge transparency in the Brahmaputra river basin spanning the northeastern region of India. It offers observations on the early stages of hydropower and road development in Arunachal Pradesh and Assam, and reflects on alternate ways of thinking about connectivity that may be more adaptable to the riverine environment and better meet the needs of residents living along the vast Brahmaputra floodplain. The chapter also proposes a few ways to close the gap between policy and action, strengthen the roles of skilled scientists and citizen monitors, and prevent the dilution of law and policy through expeditious clearances.

Keywords:   India, Brahmaputra river, Northeast India, Southeast Asia, transboundary water, water resources, environment, hydropower, development
