In Tibet, it is known as the Lion River; between the Himalaya andKarakoram ranges, it flows from the direction of the rising sun and people call it the Eastern River; inPashto the name is Abasin Father of Rivers.The source of the Indus River is the Tibetan plateau. Fed by glaciers on the mountains of Himalaya,Karakoram and Hindu Kush, the river runs 3,000 km through hills and gigantic gorges before it reachesthe flat plains of the Indus Valley in Pakistan and flows into the Arabian Sea.The Indus serves as a lifeline for the people of Pakistan. As it winds its way through the country, itnourishes temperate forests, plains and countryside. As the only major river system in one of the world’smost arid countries, it supplies water for irrigation in rural areas as well as for use in towns and cities.For years, Pakistan has used the river as part of the biggest irrigation system in the world, turning 35.7million acres of desert plain into cultivated farmland that accounts for two-thirds of the nation’s jobsand 80% of its exports.Climate change, and the melting of the Tibetan glaciers, could turn the Indus into a seasonal river.Pakistan already suffers from water shortages but melting glaciers and a more irregular precipitationpattern could disrupt water supplies throughout the region.In the absence of any other source of water, this would have a devastating effect on the Pakistanipeople. Eventually, the lack of water may lead to mass migration and imperil the very foundations of thenational economy.Video Length: 1 minute
