ICIMOD has been using river basin and transboundary landscape management approaches to work across borders and achieve shared goals. The Centre’s river basin approach takes into account a range of concerns—monitoring and assessment of water resources, water-induced risk management, and climate change adaptation and resilience building with particular focus on the poor and vulnerable. It adopts an integrated water resource management approach to improve current understanding of upstream-downstream linkages as well as the links between natural resource management and sustainable livelihoods.
The International Consultative Workshop on Strengthening Regional Cooperation across Transboundary Landscapes and River Basins in the Hindu Kush Himalaya provide a timely opportunity to envision possible mechanisms to enhance regional cooperation and to discuss priority actions for the same. It will also look into strengthening existing regional cooperation mechanisms.
