Description

This condensed report on Glacial Melt and Downstream Impacts on Indus Basin-Dependent Water Resources and Energy summarizes trends in increasing variability in precipitation, seasonal temperature regimes, glacial melt, and water supplies, and the risk scenarios for climate change and its possible impacts on millions of people in downstream areas.

It aims to stimulate regionally coordinated interdisciplinary research to provide critical information for policy and decision makers to plan and design water resources development programs in an integrated manner.

This report is produced by consultants for a regional technical assistance on Promoting Climate Change Impact and Adaptation in Asia and the Pacific (RETA 6420).
