Transboundary water resources are globally highlighted issues because they are crucial to relevant riparian nation’s security in water, food and energy, and play a vital role in regional peace and stability. The Yarlung Tsangpo-Brahmaputra River is an important international river in South Asia. The research aims to provide the scientific foundation for collaboration in transboundary water resources and strengthen the abilities of climate adaptation of all riparian countries. The main objective of IWM involvement is to prepare technical papers on Water Resources Vulnerability and Security Assessment of Brahmaputra Basin utilizing available models and data.
