This is a collection of stories represents an introduction to the people and places benefiting from the work of ICIMOD’s Koshi Basin Programme.

The river basins of South East Asia have been the subject of a
number of studies shedding light on the complexity of their
natural, political, social and economic issues. Although the
diversity of these studies and reports serves as a knowledge
base for the basins, one can rarely find a study that provides a
holistic view of the water-related vulnerabilities in the basins.

This report focuses on three major river basins in South Asia: the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna, the Indus and the Helmand.
