Koshi Basin Initiative
The Koshi Basin Initiative will approach basin-wide water management with a set of processes leading to practical outputs in the form of water development strategies, plans and activities, and improved communication to support evidence-based decision making.
Develop a shared understanding of effective and equitable basin-wide water resource development and management.
Evaluate available resources, infrastructure, demand, and access considering livelihood status and trends, climatic uncertainty and system of water governance and gender issues and identify challenges and opportunities for finding solutions.
Evaluate the efficacy, feasibility, and usefulness of development support associated with available options using modelling, evaluation, and resource optimization.
Produce viable, high-quality implementation plans based on assessed options to maintain the broader process of dialogue and attention on issues of social equity.
