Connecting The Drops: Indus River Basin Working Group 2

From December 5-7, the Stimson Center hosted a conference in Bangkok, 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 second of two to be held in Asia that year. Participants used the second conference to explore specific policy interventions that can be introduced to improve water relations between India and Pakistan, focusing on how to increase transparency in managing transboundary waters via heightened 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.
