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

Climate Change and Variability

Studies have provided different findings on temperature trends in the region and the basin (Bhutiyani et al 2009). Although Fowler and Archer (2006) have shown that mean and minimum summer temperatures provide a consistent trend of cooling beginning

Climate Variability and Coping

web app on climate change vulnerability of forest ecosystems provides information about the current relationships between climate variables and biophysical variables depicting functioning of forests. The application also provides VDC level

climate change phenomemnon is the greatest threats to the arctic and alpine zones. High-altitudes zones of the Himalayas are particularly susceptible to climate variability and have shown increase in warming, and perhaps sooner, than the rest of

New Reports Identify Impacts of Climate Change on World’s Highest Mountains

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) identifies drought as one of the major Climate risks in south Asia. The report projects that Climate change will affect food security by the middle of the 21st

increasing pressure from climate change and rising consumption. This problem is especially acute in the Hindu Kush Himalayan mountains, which are home to 210 million people and provide water to over 1.3 billion

Action for Adaptation: Bringing climate change science to policy makers

Climate models provide opportunities to understand the future Climate evolution, including the trends and variabilities. General Circulation Models (GCMs) indicate that rising concentrations of greenhouse gases will have significant implications on

The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), the Bangladesh Agricultural Research Council (BARC), and the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) organized a day-long consultation and user engagement

The conference, held from 16 to 19 February, brought together more than 80 researchers, policy makers, journalists, and practitioners from the four countries sharing the Indus basin, as well as international experts and representatives of

of the changing climate and its impact on water resources in five of the major river basins in the region: the Indus, Brahmaputra, Ganges, Salween and

This study investigates the effects of climate and socioeconomic change on the livelihoods of mountain people in the Hindu-Kush Himalayan (HKH) region, causes of vulnerability, and the ways people

change and variability is the main driver in the upper indus basin, particularly above timberline. At present, climate projections made for the Indus Basin exhibit coarse resolution, poor representation of major features such as monsoon and

Preparing for the increasing threat of climate change on population movements

Conference on Understanding Climate Change and Enabling Climate Action in Kathmandu, Nepal, saw the launch of two knowledge products developed under the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP). These products demonstrated
