If energy cooperation is to take centre stage for the South-Asian regional cooperation agenda, it is hydropower that can be of immense importance. Its huge potential especially in the upstream riparian countries of the subcontinent namely, Afghanistan in the Northwest and Bhutan and Nepal in the North East has been well recognised. These are landlocked countries and with few options available for rapid economic growth.
