The transboundary Indus basin, with an area size of 1.1 million sq.km, is spread across Afghanistan, China, India and Pakistan with upper portion resting in the Hindu Kush, Karakorum, and Himalayan ranges. The largest portions of the basin are in Pakistan (52%%) followed by India (33%). The main river originates at Lake Ngangla Rinco on the Tibetan Plateau.

The Indus Basin Knowledge Platform (IBKP) is a comprehensive and systematically set up source of information on developmental issues in the Indus Basin. It aims to bridge the science-policy interface, by bringing together scientific material from multiple disciplines such as spatial and time series biophysical datasets and maps, academic publications, as well as policy documents and legal frameworks in effect at regional to sub-national level.
