Project Megadam on the Yarlung Tsangpo river is planned to commence soon by the Power Construction corporation of China. The river flows through Bangladesh and India and the project has raised concerns in Bangladesh, which is relying on the fresh water of the same river for their needs.
Bangladesh Experts have stated that “the planned dam will disturb the flow of a river crucial for sustaining livelihoods and agriculture in the densely populated country and are calling for consultations with downstream countries before the project goes ahead”.
