The Upper Indus Basin (UIB) stretches across the regions of Pakistan, India, China and Afghanistan. The Upper Indus Basin Network-India Chapter (UIBN-IC) coordinates the research with six thematic working groups (TWGs). It acts as a platform to share research outcomes, discuss the progress and the challenges of the TWGs. This collaborative platform co-organized by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), Kathmandu, Nepal, and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi, India provides cross-cutting understanding on the areas of climate, cryosphere, water, hazards, and vulnerability, etc. within these TWGs.
