  • Enhanced trust and confidence among the journalists, water scientists and policy makers.

  • Enhanced communication skills of water scientists to reach out to the public more effectively.

  • Responsible reporting by the media based on scientifically authenticated information.

  • To assess the various economic opportunities, challenges and research priorities in the basin.

  • Changing the narrative of the basin, through water diplomacy, and making it more inclusive through incorporating gender concerns and issues of the communities at stake.
