New Delhi: China has given its nod for the first downstream dams to be built on the lower reaches of Brahmaputra River or Yarlung Zangbo River (as known in Tibet before it flows into India). A draft of China’s new Five-Year Plan (2021-2025) specifically talks about building hydropower bases on the lower reaches of the Brahmaputra river as among the priority energy projects to be undertaken in the next five years.

According to a report in The Hindu, including the dam projects in the draft plan suggests that Chinese authorities have given the green light to begin tapping the lower reaches of Bramhaputra for the first time.
