Summer School on Managing Shared River Basins: Connecting Science & Policy for Integrated Water Resources Management


The program is open for students, academics and practitioners in related disciplines. 


Rising populations, growing multi-sectoral needs, and increasing impacts of climate change have put Pakistan’s already limited transboundary water resources under immense stress. It is crucial to understand management of shared basins in a holistic perspective for equitable and sustainable future. Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) is an effective approach for managing transboundary waters which requires strong interface of science and policy. LEAD Pakistan in collaboration with Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) is conducting a Summer School on IWRM focusing on integration of technology and policy issues. The program will also explore water management of Kabul River Basin as a case study for IWRM.


  1. Developing a holistic approach for integrated water resources management through enhanced understanding of policy and technology interface.
  2. Building capacity of water professionals to develop a critical mass of future of Water Leaders.
  3. Forge a network of water professionals to create a community of practice aimed at sharing learnings and creating synergies in their work.

Focus Areas

This program will provide an introduction to policy frameworks and modeling tools for implementing Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) approach in transboundary basins. The following areas will be covered:

  • Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM)
