Project Profile

Project Title Partnership with Himalayan Adaptation, Water and Resilience (HI-AWARE) Research on Glacier and Snowpack Dependent River Basins for Improving Livelihoods
Project Code 2016HE01
Project Status Ongoing
Start Date April 2016
Sponsor(s) International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development

This project will contribute to Objective 1 of the HI-AWARE initiative, which is to be achieved through the implementation of Research Component 1 (RC1) bio-physical drivers and conditions leading to vulnerability and climate change impacts. The following activities are identified in RC1:

To develop detailed climate change scenario;

To improve cryosphere-hydrological modelling to assess significant shifts in flow regimes; and

To improve and apply a water-food impact model to link climate impact to vulnerability.
