Connecting the Drops: Indus River Basin Working Group 1

From June 26-28, the Stimson Center hosted 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 was the first of two to be held that year. Participants identified existing knowledge gaps between India and Pakistan, and discussed 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.
