Kabul River Basin Geodatabase has been designed based on a thematic structure that integrates geographic information from various sources. This thematic structure helps to understand the roles of different organizations working within the basin and the key objective of producing their spatial data. The metadata provides the record of credibility of information and their contribution towards research and development. Thus, the geodatabase comprises a comprehensive package that specifies the content, and representation of each thematic layer, including its source of information, originator, scale and credibility.
The geodatabase structure consists of different types of geographic information system (GIS) data, including attribute data, geographic features, Raster Images, surface modeling three-dimensional (3D) data, utility and transportation network systems, Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates and survey measurements.

The development of this geodatabase and decision support tool materialized with the support from DFID South Asia Water Governance Programme provided to IWMI for the research project 'Informing Change in the Indus Basin'. Various stakeholders' and experts provided their feedbacks during a stakeholders' meeting organized in Kathmandu during February 2016. Their feedbacks help identify approaches, key hotspot challenges, and range of anticipated outputs. Stakeholders in Pakistan and Afghanistan provided their inputs during series of meetings conducted. We acknowledge the inputs of all other concerned.
