Friends or foes? Is Pakistan headed for a new water conflict with Afghanistan?

Friends or foes? Is Pakistan headed for a new water conflict with Afghanistan?

Date and location 05/11/2019 Tariq Rafi Lecture Hall, Habib University

A substantial fraction of total flow in the Indus River Basin, a critical lifeline for Pakistan’s agricultural-based economy, generates in other countries. Towards the eastern border, rapid infrastructure development from India threatens to reduce flows from Indus’ eastern tributaries governed by the Indus Water Treaty. On the western front, there is growing interest from Afghanistan in utilizing the hydroelectric potential of Kabul River, another major tributary to the Indus, where there is no existing transboundary water sharing agreement. Given the unique hydrology of the Kabul River, there is potential for increased conflict and mistrust between the two countries if development of the Kabul Basin is performed unilaterally.
