Transforming the Indus Basin with Climate Resilient Agriculture and Water Management

Transforming agriculture in the Indus Basin by increasing resilience among the most vulnerable farmers and strengthening government capacity to support communities to adapt.

Pakistan’s vulnerability is linked to its arid to semi-arid climate, as well as its high dependency on a single river system along with snow and glacial meltwater to provide its agricultural water supply. 

This project will develop the country’s capacity to use the information it needs to adapt to the impacts of climate change on agriculture and water management by putting in place state-of-the art technology. It will build farmers’ climate resilience through skills, knowledge and technology enhancement activities. It will also create a wider enabling environment for continuous adaptation.

This project has an estimated lifespan of 20 years.
