This is a free event hosted by the Climate Change & Energy Think Tank Programme at the Global Research Network.

This panel event will address the issues of climate change on water governance in South Asia. Climate change impacts significantly the South Asian region with its rich biodiversity and thick population. The impacts of climate change have induced several challenges to human rights and environmental sustainability. It particularly affects the poorest sections who are induced to migrate and bear the sufferings.

Recurrent floods and abnormal rainfalls are now common in the region which shares the most important rivers of the world. With more developmental activities proposed on these rivers, the impacts of climate change are critical to social equity and environmental justice.

This event focuses on the impacts of climate change on water governance in the region. It specifically focuses on transboundary water governance patterns and how essential regional cooperation is to strengthen our attention to addressing climate change.

This event will focus on two specific issues:

1) What are the challenges raised by climate change on transboundary water governance in South Asia?

2) How could we address the same through regional cooperation?
