Other projects may be associated with this project -- for example an initiative or commission may have authority over a specific dam, or a river linking project may have serious implications for dam operations -- and while these can be described in text of the Project Article, this sections allows you to insert a semantic link that ties this project article to related projects.

If an article exists, you can enter the title (e.g.: Ganges River, Mekong River Commission, Glen Canyon Dam, Indus Water Treaty), and it will be automatically linked to the case study. If the article does not exist, a new page will automatically be created for the feature. You will be able to see/edit that page by clicking the link when viewing your saved case study.

We suggest looking at the existing list of features, projects, and agreements.
