GWP South Asia, in collaboration with the Asia Pacific Adaptation Network, has published a report on Issues related to Water and Agriculture in South Asia to help improve the exchange of information on water resources management and climate change adaptation among South Asian countries and pave the way for improved cooperation and policy reform.
Though there is political recognition of the impacts of climate change in many countries of the region, there is inadequate policy support. The report draws attention to such issues and proposes strategies to fight the effects of climate change, providing a much-needed framework for policy reform.
In preparing the report, GWP South Asia mediated a consultative process requesting technical contributions. As the coordinating body, it was able to produce a document that reflects the situation in the region as a whole but also contains information specific to each country.
