For well over half a century, Nepalis have dreamed of developing their tremendous water resources. But progress has been slight and controversies many. This historical reality suggests that much wider academic and management perspectives are called for, particularly at a moment of profound political, economic, and regional change. As Nepal strives to move forward amid these great uncertainties, how should it address the water sector‘s daunting technical, economic, environmental, and governance challenges? This panel discussion brings together three Nepali experts who have wrestled with these issues in their professional and academic lives for a broad discussion of the institutional and structural problems hindering Nepal‘s hydropower and water resource development. We hope you‘ll join us.

About the Fulbright Lecture Series: In celebration of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Nepal, the Fulbright Commission (USEF) in Nepal is organizing a lecture and policy discussion event each month in 2017. The lecture series brings together the alumni of various U.S. exchange programs and other Nepal experts to examine issues of importance to both countries. The views expressed in the lecture series belong to each speaker; they do not necessarily represent the views of the Commission. The events are open to the public.
