  This chapter is concerned with how water can be sustainably managed across the Indus basin, focusing specifically on the challenges of surface water management in India and Pakistan. Governments in both countries have laid emphasis on the expansion of hydropower for storage, irrigation, and energy trading, and consequently the politics of water Cited by: 1. The water-management technologies developed in the Indus basin regarding conveyance and application of water at the farm are very promising, as Pakistan was ahead of the countries in the region.

Ground Water 52 Cited by: Water conflict is a term describing a conflict between countries, states, or groups over an access to water resources. The United Nations recognizes that water disputes result from opposing interests of water users, public or private. A wide range of water conflicts appear throughout history, though rarely are traditional wars waged over water alone.

An analysis of the surface water resources and water delivery systems in the Indus Basin By A. Khan Download PDF (11 MB)Author: A. Khan. Abstract. The Indus Basin covers an area of about million square kilometers.

A large part of the basin lies in the Hindu Kush, Karakorum, and Himalaya mountains. Glacier melt is essential in sustaining the water requirements, food security, and livelihoods of millions of people in that area.

Indus River Basin: Water Security and Sustainability provides a comprehensive treatment of water-related issues within the Indus River basin. Each chapter is written by an expert in the field, hence this book serves as a single, holistic source covering the whole region, not just a single country.

With transboundary flow of waters, a comprehensive hydrologic modeling system is needed to capture hydrologic response from headwater regions of major tributaries that significantly impact downstream areas.

Rainfall from monsoonal seasons often produces devastating flooding along the Indus River and major : Thomas E. Adams. Purchase Analysis of Water Resource Systems, Volume 32 - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNBook Edition: 1.

The study provides information on water balance and water use efficiency estimate in the competing sectors. The total water available is BCM, of which BCM is available for use, however Surface water flow is concentrated in the Indus River and its tributaries Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi, Sutlej and Kabul.

Water is buffered and distributed by a system comprising 3 major reservoirs, Water sector investment planning study: guide to the Indus Basin model revised (English) Abstract.

Developmental work on the original Indus Basin Model (IBM) began in and culminated in with the publication of several research papers. In an operational setting the model has been periodically 'revived' and adapted to the analysis of.

4, cubic km. The availability from surface water and replenishable groundwater is 1, cubic km. Out of this only 60 per cent can be put to beneficial uses. Thus, the total utilisable water resource in the country is only 1, cubic km. Surface Water Resources There are four major sources of surface water.

These are rivers, lakes, ponds File Size: KB. It is used for drinking, bathing, washing, irrigation, industries and a host of other purposes. About 71 per cent of the earth’s surface is covered by water and that is why our earth is called the ‘watery planet’.

Soil salinization is one of the most damaging environmental problems in coastal areas, including Indus River Delta (IRD).

Due to the reduction of flow in the Indus basin, saline water from the Arabian Sea is intruding into the IRD and has degraded the agricultural lands drastically.

Surface-water resources in Pakistan are based on the flows of the Indus River and its tributaries (Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi, Sutlej, and Beas to the east and the Kabul River to the west).

The Indus River has a total length of km and a drainage area of ∼, km 2. The inflow to these rivers is mainly derived Cited by: Pakistan - Water Sector Capacity Building and Advisory Services Project (English) Abstract.

The objective of the Water Sector Capacity Building and Advisory Services Project for Pakistan is to improve management and investment planning of water resources in the Indus River Basin.

sufficient forensic data. The surface water inflows to Pakistan from the Indus and its tributaries are measured sufficiently well. Runoff generated within Pakistan—including in Balochistan outside the Indus Basin—is not well measured and is often ignored.

Pakistan’s current total average annual renewable resource is estimated to be. Water issues in the Indus Basin are mainly regulated through the Indus Waters Treaty (IWT). It was signed inand mediated by the World Bank to avoid water conflict between India and Pakistan.

The treaty defined the principles for interstate water sharing from the Indus (The Indus Waters Treaty, ). It has generally been considered a.Water supply system - Water supply system - Surface water and groundwater: Surface water and groundwater are both important sources for community water supply needs.

Groundwater is a common source for single homes and small towns, and rivers and lakes are the usual sources for large cities.

Although approximately 98 percent of liquid fresh water exists as groundwater, much of it occurs very .Accumulation of water causes problem of waterlogging and salinity in the Indus basin which threatens the livelihood of farmers (Bhutta & Wolters ).

In such circumstances, to study the impact of extreme conditions like prevailing drought/flood and over exploitation of groundwater on the subsurface aquifer system is vital for better.
