The need arises in view of the following:

  • There have been limited discussion on this at the national level either at the Governmental level or by civil Society Groups on the issue of River Basin Planning; The dialogue could initiate a process of mainstreaming river basin planning into other national and sectoral plans; Provide a platform to express various views on the issue including likely problems so that a realistic approach could be adopted
  • Discuss on issue of importance especially on Cumulative Impacts, carrying capacity and ecological flows, protection of catchments and issues related to river basin planning
