The fourth lecture in the ten-part series titled "Living Rivers, Dying Rivers" was delivered by Dr. Chandan Mahanta, Professor, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati on 'Rivers in North-East India'.

Rivers in North-East India

This lecture began with a broad overview of the general state of the North East and its river systems. The region comprising eight Indian states has a unique geo-strategic location for the reason that it is connected with mainland India through a narrow stretch of land and is surrounded by China, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal. In spite of its rich natural resource endowment especially its water resources, the region faces neglect from the Indian state apart from challenges like contested ethnicities, political & social marginalities, widespread poverty, geographical disadvantage and armed insurgencies.

The rivers of the North East being hidden in the Himalayas are insufficiently studied, and the value of the massive river systems emerging from the Tibetan plateau--the water tower of Asia--is yet to be fully understood. The region with just five percent of the country’s area has thirty percent of the national water resource potential and its per capita water availability is 18,400 cubic meters as compared to the national figure of 2,208 cubic meters.

However, in spite of the large water potential, the region is caught in a paradox marked by the presence of some of the most water-starved pockets and bleak irrigation and agricultural development. Partial and uncertain accessibility of a water resource database has resulted in the lack of adequate scientific planning. Besides, water resources related institutional arrangements are bureaucratically complex and/or incomplete.
