The case study discusses the methodology used for assessing Glacial Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF) risk in the Poiqu/Bhote Kosi basin- a transboundary basin between Tibet Autonomous Region of China and Nepal. The main steps in the assessment include the simulation of the outburst using a mathematical model; analysis of the flood propagation along the river stretch of 100 km; and analysis of the socio-economic impacts in the downstream areas of the lake through field study.
