Project Description

This regional capacity development technical assistance (TA) will help strengthen integrated water resources management (IWRM) in Afghanistan, Bhutan, and Nepal. The TA will contribute to the management of environment and climate change impacts, one of the strategic priorities in the Midterm Review of Strategy 2020 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). It will do this by assisting target river basins in strengthening water resources management to cope with (i) expected changes in water availability due to climate change, and (ii) increase in water demand due to economic and population growth. ADB''s Water Operational Plan, 2011- 2020 prioritizes embedding the IWRM process in river basins.
