Transboundary Water Governance in the Hindu Kush Himalaya Region Beyond the Dialectics of Conflict and Cooperation : HI-AWARE Working Paper 7
The querulous nature of transboundary water governance is as old as the concept and practice of transboundary water management
. Its discourse is now overwhelmed by attempts made and lessons learnt in transboundary water management. Against this background, this paper presents a systematic inquiry into the rationale behind transboundary cooperation in order to reinforce and inform further research on and practice of transboundary water governance in the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) region. Why should riparian countries collaborate with each other to form a transboundary alliance? This narrative review attempts to provide a justification for a pragmatic approach to transboundary water governance that goes beyond the dialectics of conflict and cooperation, particularly for countries in the HKH, where research evidence suggests that such a governance system could have momentous socio-economic as well as political implications. Research dedicated to finding this rationale is restricted to secondary-data analysis based mainly on national and international level research-based perspectives on the need for transboundary water management. The main objective of the review is to aid the understanding of the current status and conceivability of transboundary water management in HKH countries to ultimately help in policy and decision making
Waste Management Outlook for Mountain Regions - Sources and Solutions
Peñaranda, L. F.
Mountains play an essential role in supplying water, energy, food and other services to millions of people living in the mountains and downstream
. Ensuring the continued supply of these services has never been more important. However, many mountain regions are experiencing a growing solid waste problem, from ever-expanding urban sprawls and cities, increasing consumption patterns, existing and past mining operations, tourism activities and practises of illegal dumping. Steepness, remoteness, prevailing socio-economic conditions, and vulnerability to natural hazards, makes waste management in mountains more challenging than in lowland areas. Gravity and river flow can also enlarge the footprint of mountain waste to a thousand kilometres or more downstream - and even right into the ocean
