The Hindu Kush Himalayan region encompasses an area of 4.2 million km2 of hills and mountains in the countries of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan. With its vast expanses of snow and ice, the region it is known as the water tower of Asia, which is being significantly affected by climate change. The meltwater from Himalayan snow and ice feeds 10 large river systems of South Asia: the Amu Darya, Brahmaputra, Ganges, Indus, Irrawaddy, Mekong, Salween, Tarim, Yangtze and Yellow Rivers.
This case study was carried out in Chitral, Pakistan, and it focuses on local water governance systems and the local capacity to adapt to climate change. The present-day water governance systems (both community-based and government managed) are compared for functionality and good governance. The community-based system is then assessed to determine its ability to strengthen local capacity for adaptation to water stress.
