Indus Knowledge Partnership Platform (IKPP) is a comprehensive repository of existing knowledge on the Indus basin.
Indus Basin Initiative

Regional Programme Manager
How are climate change and socioeconomic factors impacting the basin? What are the ongoing research on various climate, water and hazard issues in the basin? What adaptation activities are being carried out in communities? How could we influence policy for better adaptation to climate-change induced hazards in the basin?
The platform aims to compile and offer access to wide range of publication, data, and tools to expand current knowledge base about the basin. The platform is also an effort to collate existing fragmented knowledge within the basin countries and contribute towards a comprehensive understanding of basin issues on water, cryosphere and land.
Through enhancing the current knowledge base, the platform aims to support scientific research, assist policy and decision making, and support evidence based reporting. Not only that, the platform aims to enhance knowledge exchange and foster interaction between junior researchers and students and climate science experts (‘meet the experts’ section hyperlink). Inviting a wide range of audience including scientists and scholars, policy and decision makers, media and community organizations, the platform also aims to contribute towards bridging gaps in practice, policy, and science communications.
We generate and synthesize wide range of policy relevant and evidence based knowledge materials, products, and tools
We invite individuals and institutions within the basin countries and outside to share and build on each other’s’ knowledge
We join hands with partners from academia, government, and media to ensure that knowledge on the basin reaches wide and encourages climate friendly decision-making
The platform offers everything from recent publications, media reports, interactive datasets, to policy documents. Primarily, you could navigate through spatial and non-spatial data, and hundreds of publications on topics ranging from water resource management, agriculture, hazards, to climate change and hydrology in the Indus River Basin. Furthermore, you will also be able to find articles, videos, and other media coverage on the Indus Basin in various media outlets.
