dc.description.abstract The report examines water governance in the Asian Highlands towards awareness of, and preparedness for effective water resource management, and to encourage local adaptive capacities. It identifies highlights, unexpected discoveries and main challenges towards meeting the project goals. Ecological tipping points, community vulnerabilities, and transboundary water governance are complex influences that drive the direction of change in ecological/socio-economic systems and require interdisciplinary approaches. Climate change in the Asian Highlands poses known and predicted biophysical impacts affecting water resources. How the “Water Tower of Asia” is governed impacts the lives of almost 3 billion people living downstream. en
