The Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region is one of the most complex, dynamic, and fragile mountain systems in the world, and is extremely sensitive to the effects of climate change. The frequency and magnitude of extreme weather events are likely to keep increasing, putting people in flood-prone areas at risk with shared vulnerabilities across national boundaries. For example, the 2010 floods in northern Pakistan affected an estimated 20.2 million people; the 2017 floods in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal killed over 1,000 people, and caused economic losses estimated at millions of dollars. Women, children, and physically-challenged people are typically more vulnerable to the effects of floods.
