South Asian countries lose over $14.2 billion a year due to the lack of a water sharing deal

Countries around the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna (GBM) basin are losing over $14.2 billion annually from a lack of cooperation in sharing the waters of these rivers, with little prospect of an agreement in the foreseeable future, according to a new analysis. The study, commissioned by the Trans-boundary Rivers of South Asia (TROSA) program, says that while demand for water is increasing, its availability and quality are gradually declining, increasing competition among riparian states (countries that share a transboundary inland river or lake).
