Agricultural produce, Nepal
Given the high
level of uncertainty regarding future runoff levels, and also
the highly variable contribution of glacial water and snowmelt from the mountains, future agricultural production
faces significant uncertainty. Surrounding the rivers originating in the Himalayas, like the Indus, Syr
Darya, and Amu Darya, a major decline in the water flow will
have devastating impacts on food production and domestic
availability, as there are few, if any, alternatives to this water.
