Second Summer School on Managing River Basins


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


After the successful completion of Summer School 1, LEAD Pakistan in collaboration with Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation's Standing Committee on Scientific and Technological Cooperation (COMSTECH) is conducting the second round of Summer School on Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) focusing on integration of technology and policy issues. IWRM is an effective approach for managing transboundary waters which requires strong interface of science and policy. It is crucial to understand management of shared basins in a holistic perspective for equitable and sustainable future.


  • Developing a holistic approach to policies regarding equitable management and sustainable use of water by reflecting on the interconnected nature of hydrological resources.
  • Building capacity of water professionals to develop a critical mass of future of Water Leaders.
  • Forging a network of water professionals across key sectors and institutions 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)
  • Hydro-meteorological modelling and simulation tools
  • Political economy of shared river basins
  • Legal frameworks for transboundary waters
  • Case study of Kabul River Basin
