The potential and scope for the development of many of these rivers are very promising.</p><p>In this paper, only the larger rivers are described. They are the Mekong, Red, Brahmaputra, Meghna, Ganges, Kosi, Gandak, Gogra, Sutlej, Indus, Kabul and Helmand. The report contains basic data and information regarding the physical features and hydro-meteorological characteristics of the rivers and their basins, as well as brief descriptions of projects completed, under construction and planned.
