Pak-Afghan Stakeholders Consultation on Kabul River Basin, Kazakhstan

Under USAID’s Partnership for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER) program, LEAD Pakistan has undertaken a comprehensive research initiative titled “Understanding our Joint Water-Climate Change Challenge and Exploring Policy Options for Cooperation on the Kabul River Basin”.

This three-year project (2016 – 2019) aims to promote cooperation, collaboration, and an integrated approach to basin-wide development. It will not only explore the scientific avenues of Kabul River Basin tributaries’ flows and impact of climate change to feed into science-based policy but will also promote collaboration between the two countries. Building on informed scientific evidence, the project will ensure participation and engagement of multiple stakeholders from Pakistan and Afghanistan through a series of stakeholder consultations, expert talks, and policy dialogues.

Interacting with a range of key stakeholders and getting various perspectives is crucial step in initiating any discourse on transboundary cooperation. To initiate this process, the Pak-Afghan Stakeholders Consultation is scheduled to take place in Feb 2018 in Almaty, Kazakhstan, with the aim to engage a broader audience and explore avenues of cooperation on the Kabul River Basin.

The Consultation will bring together experts from Afghanistan and Pakistan on the same platform with two main objectives:      

  1. Exploring possible avenues of cooperation and mutually beneficial uses for both Afghanistan and Pakistan decision makers, based on the concept of benefit sharing on the waters of Kabul River Basin.
  2. Proposing an integrated basin wide approach to guide policy making in the management, governance, and development of the Kabul River Basin.
