Water diplomacy facilitates cooperation over water. This project has been initiated by IIT Guwahati and supported by the DGIS UNESCO‚ÄźIHE Programmatic Cooperation (DUPC). It aims to generate a space wherein water journalists, scientists and policy makers (on some level) from the four Brahmaputra basin nations (India, Bangladesh, Bhutan and China) can engage in a process of common learning and co-production of knowledge, to contribute towards water diplomacy in the basin.


  • Enhanced trust and confidence among the journalists, water scientists and policy makers.

  • Enhanced communication skills of water scientists to reach out to the public more effectively.

  • Responsible reporting by the media based on scientifically authenticated information.

  • To assess the various economic opportunities, challenges and research priorities in the basin.

  • Changing the narrative of the basin, through water diplomacy, and making it more inclusive through incorporating gender concerns and issues of the communities at stake.
