Science Communication
for Water Diplomacy in the Brahmaputra
Our Aim
Water diplomacy facilitates cooperation over water. This project has been initiated by IIT Guwahati and supported by
the DGIS UNESCO‐IHE 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.
