The Indus Knowledge Partnership Platform (IKPP) is a comprehensive repository of existing knowledge on the Indus River basin. This partnership-based platform offers access to a wide range of knowledge products, data and tools, and brings together fragmented knowledge and data from the basin countries to improve understanding of basin-level issues related to water, cryosphere, and land.
The aim is to share knowledge and facilitate discussions around questions such as:
By enhancing the current knowledge base, the platform will support scientific research and collaboration, assist policy and decision making, and provide evidence-based reporting. In addition, the platform will facilitate knowledge exchange and foster interaction between thematic experts, junior researchers, and students on the issues of climate, hydrology, cryosphere, and environmental hazards in the basin. By engaging a range of audiences, including scientists and scholars, policy and decision makers, media and community organizations, the platform will contribute towards bridging gaps in practice, policy, and science communications.
We synthesize a wide range of relevant policies and evidence-based knowledge products, and package them for diverse audiences
We invite individuals and institutions within and beyond the basin countries to share and build on existing knowledge
We join hands with partners from academia, governments, and media to ensure knowledge on the basin reaches wide and encourages climate friendly decision-making
