Fact Sheets

The fundamental objective of this collaborative study is to develop a thorough and systematic assessment of the contribution of both seasonal snow and glaciers to the water resources originating across the Himalaya, Karakoram, Hindu Kush, Pamir and Tien Shan mountain ranges, referred to here as High Asia. These mountain ranges are located within the countries of Bhutan, Nepal, China, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. These countries, containing the headwaters of the Brahmaputra, Ganges, Indus, Syr Darya and Amu Darya rivers, all possess significant snow and ice resources. The amount, timing and spatial patterns of snow and ice melt play key roles in providing water for downstream irrigation, hydropower generation and general consumption. Water security in such high-altitude regions of the world is par-ticularly sensitive to climate change because of the significant role of snow and glaciers.

Protracted conflict, high levels of insecurity, inhospitable terrain, severe climate and weak infrastructure have plagued Afghanistan for the past 30 years. Afghanistan’s humanitarian landscape is further complicated by several other factors: a majority of the population lives in hard-to-reach rural areas, over 700,000 Afghans are internally displaced by conflict, over 200,000 people are exposed to natural disasters each year, and more than 2.2 million people are severely food insecure.
