Regional cooperation in South Asia, with particular reference to shared water resources, is well acknowledged to be a required enabler for inclusive and equitable growth of the region. In the European context, cooperation within the EU has many takeaways and learnings in this regard. Areas such as disaster management, urbanization, water resource management, hydro-power development and Inland Water navigation are areas which can benefit from holistic and inclusive planning and the governance process. The EU-India water partnership can also be a timely mechanism to foster learning and sharing between the EU and South-Asia. This conversation would bring in perspectives on the range of these subjects .
