Challenges of Water Stress and Climate Change in the Himalayan River Basins
Collaborative Dialogue Process
Strategic Foresight Group had organized the first inter-national workshop on Challenges of Water Stress and Climate Change in the Himalayan River Basins at Hotel Dwarika’s, Kathmandu, Nepal, on August 6-7, 2009. The participants overwhelmingly emphasized the need to promote Himalayan Sub-regional Cooperation to ensure water security and a climate of peace and progress. There is no alternative to cooperation in view of the retreat of glaciers, resulting decline in river flows in parts of the four countries and flooding in other parts, tectonic changes in the Himalayan region, sedimentation, threat to food security and the risk of increase in inequity.
