The irrigated cropland in the basins of the Asian rivers originating in the Himalayas that are most dependent upon the mountains for water flow, comprises approximately 857,830,000 ha. Water from the Hindu Kush-Himalayas and the central Asian mountain region thus supports the production of over 500 million tonnes of cereals per year, equivalent to nearly 55% of Asia’s cereal production and 25% of the world production today.
