The specially developed waterway, which will be used simultaneously for electricity generation and irrigation, would allow very large river boats to travel to Nepal. The Upper Rhine waterway, used in conjunction with electricity generation, as well as inland navigation in Switzerland, is a typical example of the multi-purpose use of the waterway. Thus, the waterway of the kosi canal, which could be designed for the operation of 1500 tons of barges, would actually be better than the waterway with the natural layout. Nepal in 2008 is different. This “new” Nepal has undergone changes in domestic policy and a representative agreement on power-sharing. India should be ready to renegotiate the open mind. The Nepalese Prime Minister had made it clear that the state of the damage, which claimed the lives of some 50,000 people, was unprecedented and that, in accordance with the agreement to repair the damage, this must be India`s main task. Although no statement has been made by India, skepticism remains about possible effective cooperation agreements in the field of water management between the two countries. At present, the threat of a possible effective cooperation agreement on water management is still suspect. For India, cooperation with Nepal is the only solution, as the alternatives are limited at home.
The shadow of mistrust and mistrust could be costly in the long run for both countries. The devastation caused by the Kosi tidal wave is a grim reminder of the need for a cordial relationship with Nepal and the need to focus on complementary interests and not confrontational issues. (ii) the details of the project. – The general layout of the wall, the areas inside the access bank, the roadblocks and the communication routes are presented in the plan attached to this agreement. As a result, the prime ministers of our two countries recently announced together that they would develop navigation using the natural route of the Kosi River itself, although the Kosi River is expected to dry up for more of the year due to the strong water intake for irrigation. Koshi Dam, also known as the Bhimnagar Dam, was built between 1959 and 1963 and extends over the Indo-Nepal border. It is an irrigation, flood protection and hydropower project on the Kosi River, built as part of a bilateral agreement between Nepal and India: India has covered all project costs.
