The volume of water in the Himalayan Ganges and the river basin have both steadily decreased from 2002 to 2021, said the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), an authoritative voice on weather, climate and water to the Nations. United. In its latest report titled “State of the World’s Water Resources 2021”, the WMO says that the Ganges-Brahmaputra and Indus basins that form the plain have seen more water flow through river channels due to the melting ice, even as its total water storage has declined in 2021.TWS, which includes surface soil moisture, root zone soil moisture, groundwater, snow, ice, water stored in vegetation and water from rivers and lakes. era of growing demand and limited supply. According to the report, several global hotspots, including the San Francisco River Basin in Patagonia, the headwaters of the Indus and the basins of the southwestern United States, have a similar negative TWS.

The Indo-Gangetic plain supports half a million people, whose territory straddles eastern Pakistan, northern India, southern Nepal and all of Bangladesh.

The volume of water in the Himalayan Ganges and the river basin have both steadily decreased from 2002 to 2021, said the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), an authoritative voice on weather, climate and water to the Nations. United.

In its latest report entitled “State of World Water Resources 2021“, the WMO says that the Ganges-Brahmaputra and Indus basins that form the plain have seen more water flow into river channels due to melting ice, even as their total water storage decreased in 2021.

“Major river basins in India (Brahmaputra, Ganges, and Indus), as well as other important river basins in Asia (Huang He and Mekong), exhibit a gradual decline in terrestrial water storage (TWS ) over the period 2002-2021,” the report states.

TWS, which includes surface soil moisture, root zone soil moisture, groundwater, snow, ice, water stored in vegetation, and water from rivers and lakes.

The report says the purpose of this annual review is to support the monitoring and management of the world’s freshwater resources at a time of growing demand and limited supply.

According to the report, several global hotspots, including the San Francisco River basin in Patagonia, the headwaters of the Indus and basins in the southwestern United States, have similar negative TWS.

As for the reasons, the report says that melting glaciers are mainly to blame: “The melting of snow and ice is also having a significant impact in several regions, including Alaska, Patagonia and the Himalayas”, says The report.

A positive TWS trend was observed in the Great Lakes regionthe Niger Basin, the East African Rift and the North Amazon Basin.
