Indus Basin

As the catastrophic floods of 2022 have demonstrated, there is a critical need for a new approach to managing water flows and storage in the Indus Basin, which provides water for almost 90 percent of food production in Pakistan. Climate change will increase the variability in the monsoons and lead to changes in the timing and amount of snow and glacier melt, increasing the frequency and severity of floods and droughts. NEXUS Gains will help better understand underlying drivers of change and how surface water and groundwater can be better managed to safeguard against floods and droughts, boost agricultural productivity, grow energy security and protect the environment.
