Mr. Himanshu THakkar is working as coordinator of South Asia Network on Dams, Rivers and People (SANDRP) which is an informal network of organizations and individuals working on issues related with water sector with special focus on issues associated with large dams, mostly in India, but including South Asia regional issues. SANDRP’s broad objective is to work on these issues so that democracy, people and environmenta get due place.
Being a coordinator Mr. Thakkar believes that transboundary water issues in South Asia and Central Asia can have lessons for each other, since climate change will affect them all. There are countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan which are common to two regions whose issues should be studied and approached carefully.
