Goals and Objectives

Goal

Improve understanding of the impact of climate change and associated changes in the cryospheric and cryo-hydrological regimes to support research institutions, governments, and civil society organizations to develop better adaptation strategies and, in turn, underpin strategic thinking and interventions for enhanced community resilience in the Indus Basin. 

Objectives

  • To build resilience to climate change impacts by improving understanding of past and future climate trends.
  • To improve understanding of the impact of climate change and associated changes in the cryosphere and the cryo-hydrological regimes.
  • To improve understanding of the impact of hydrological change on the agricultural and socio-economic conditions of vulnerable downstream populations.
  • To support the development of better strategies as well as gender sensitive policies and adaptation options. 
  • To support strategic thinking and interventions that lead to enhanced community resilience in the Indus River Basin.
