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


Indus Basin Initiative


Indus Knowledge Partnership Platform (IKPP)

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.


What does the platform aim to achieve?

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.


How to use the platform?

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.

Our focus

Frequently asked questions

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
