Stimson Center convenes workshop in Nepal on water management in Indus River Basin

in Program

From June 26-28, the Stimson Center is hosting a conference in Kathmandu with the support of the US State Department, bringing together Indian and Pakistani scientists, agricultural economists, water experts, and climate-change modelers to discuss best water management practices in the Indus River Basin. The conference is the first of two to be held in Nepal this year. Participants will identify existing knowledge gaps between India and Pakistan, and discuss how to increase transparency in managing transboundary waters through increased data-sharing on 1) water inflow levels into the basin and 2) climate change impacts on snowpack- and glacial melt rates in the Indus headwater regions.
