Roundtable on Building Resilience to Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources of the Upper Indus Basin
With warming in the HKH being higher than the global average (ICIMOD, 2007), climate induced natural hazards are likely to be exacerbated, including severe glacial melting and the formation of glacial lakes and, GLOFs.
stretches of fertile floodplains of the Koshi basin is one of the most agriculturally abundant regions of Bihar (India) and Nepal that frequently suffers from significant flood and drought events attributing to low agricultural productivity,

Basin has further increased flood damage. This new finding was based on a research by ICIMOD Koshi Basin Programme partner AN Sinha Institute of Social Science (ANSISS) Patna, India. The research was highlighted in India’s largest
Workshop on the Action Research Design to Build the Adaptive Capacity of the Migrant Sending Households in the Flood Affected Rural Communities
In the mountains, permafrost stabilizes rock slopes, moraines and debris-covered slopes. For instance, moraines consist of loose sediment often held together by permafrost. When permafrost thaws, slopes become more vulnerable to erosion. Debris and

Nepal has a long history of farmer managed irrigation systems (FMIS) where farmers take sole responsibility for operating and maintaining their irrigation systems. In the absence of strong government intervention in the past, FMIS slowly evolved
Building Community Resilience to Flood Hazards Using Geospatial Technology
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.
