Transboundary Working Groups
The transboundary working group (TWG) on Policy Advocacy has a critical role in the Koshi DRR Knowledge Hub (KDKH). The group will actively look out for entry points for advocacy and recommendations for key policy and strategies in the three countries – China, India and Nepal. The group will further seek champions of change within the existing and identified system. More importantly, it will closely work hand-in-hand with other TWGs to actively promote policy advocacy for transboundary collaboration between the basin countries for DRR and resilient Koshi Basin.
