Date: Wednesday, 14 September
Time: 10:30 – 12pm

At this meeting, we will explore ways of enhancing knowledge sharing and generation in the Indus Basin towards more inclusive and accountable transboundary water governance. It will bring together key experts, government officials, and civil society groups from all the four riparian countries Afghanistan, China, India and Pakistan to discuss and create common understanding of current challenges and potential pathways for meaningful engagement.

A panel discussion on ‘Learning from other basins on strengthening knowledge sharing for cooperation’, will explore ways in which cross-basin learnings from the Mekong, Nile and other rivers basins can help support knowledge management and development in the Indus Basin.

It will also feature a new Indus Basin Knowledge Platform (IBKP) which has been developed as a one-stop ‘knowledge shop’, allowing decision makers and the wider public access to information on the basin, which will inform and enable more effective responsive to multiple development challenges.

The meeting is being convened by IWMI under its Informing Change in Indus Basin (ICIB) programme. ICIB seeks to consolidate existing knowledge on the Indus basin, improve understanding of decision making processes, and promote cooperation and facilitate basin-wide dialogue between all countries sharing this basin.
