The objective of this proposed Programme is to improve understanding of the impact of climate change and associated changes in the cryospheric and cryo-hydrologic regime to support development of better strategies for adaptation options by research institutions, governments, and civil society organizations and thereby support strategic thinking and interventions leading to enhanced community resilience in the Indus river basin thereby contributing to the Nairobi Work Programme (NWP) work area on research, adaptation planning and practices.
