Water Dispute in Kashmir

March 9, 2012

India and Pakistan’s dispute over Kashmir is not just about territory–it is also about water. One focal point of this conflict today is the Baglihar dam, which sits on the Chenab river that flows from Jammu and Kashmir (administered by India) into Pakistan.

You can read about this conflict and view maps of the disputed territory in these articles in The Economist, The Christian Science Monitor, and the New York Times. You can also read regional coverage of this conflict in The Times of India and view photos of the dam on the website Pakistan Defence.
