Water Resource as a Source of Conflict between Nepal and India

Water ignores political boundaries and it decisions to use water in one region affect other regions. Haque (2009) inscribes that conflict over waters usually takes place over use and management of trans-boundary waters. In case of the shared water basins, water use in the upstream can affect downstream quantity and quality creating potential conflicts of interests (Haque, 2009). But here it is ironical that the rivers are originated or have flown through Nepal to India but mainly it is Nepal which has been benefitted less from water sharing.
