Doubts in India about the National River Linking Project

Indian authorities have designed a gigantic river interconnection project, dubbed the National River Linking Project (NRLP), which aims to replenish the rivers of Northern India, affected by pollution, overexploitation and climate change, using water from Southern rivers.

Recent declarations by Indian leaders suggest that doubts are beginning to creep in about this project, its real benefits and its multiple costs.

The US Water Portal Circle of Blue reports on the situation and provides links to relevant articles in the Indian press, as well as to the International Water Management Institute report on NRLP.
