specific research and data gaps by mapping existing knowledge related to climate change in the Indus basin, and by supporting evidence based development in communities across the
vast amount of data about the Koshi River Basin is now at your fingertips, even in the field from a mobile phone. It has long been a challenge for users working on transboundary issues to find reliable data that doesn’t stop at borders, which
Many records indicate that the trend of rising temperatures is more significant in mountain regions than adjacent lowlands. Climate models also suggest that the future will bring greater temperature increase and more erratic precipitation.
The Indus River Basin is shared by four countries Afghanistan, China, India, and Pakistan, with the largest portions of the basin lying in Pakistan (52%) and India (33%). The main river originates at Lake Ngangla Rinco on the Tibetan Plateau in the

This training aims to train relevant professionals from ICIMOD and selected partner institutions and SERVIR-hubs on sentinel satellite data analysis for various applications.
How is climate change impacting water resources in the Himalayas? That’s a big question, and now there’s a comprehensive atlas that policy makers and practitioners can turn to for answers and information.
The Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH), a global asset, is rich in cultural and biological diversity, and natural resources. It is also home to inaccessible, remote, and fragile regions where local populations live in poverty. Managing ecosystems in the
