However, climate change and over-exploitation have left the river badly damaged and at risk of drying up completely. The government has introduced new rules to protect the river and those who depend on it, but many people have no choice but to break these laws in order to earn a living.

Effective action on climate change needs us to make sure that the efforts of one group aren’t undermined by those of another. In the policy realm, this means we need policies to work together across different sectors, rather than against one another. Working out how we can achieve these things in a coherent manner across policy sectors presents a substantial governance challenge.
