CHANSE: Coupled Human and natural systems environment for water management under uncertainty in the Indo-Gangetic Plain

CHANSE: Coupled Human and natural systems environment for water management under uncertainty in the Indo-Gangetic Plain

Project Status: 
Ongoing

Managing water resources in the Indo-Gangetic Plain (IGP) is a tremendous challenge because of the basin's uniqueness in scale, biophysical complexity and the dynamics of its institutional and socio-economic characteristics. Considering expected population growth and impacts of climate change, achieving water security in India, and especially in the IGP, is a growing challenge that requires interdisciplinary collaboration across sectors, local communities, institutions and academia. This project brings together researchers from leading UK (Imperial College London, University of Exeter and British Geological Survey) and Indian institutions (ATREE, Indian Institute of Science Bangalore, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology Pune), in partnership with international (UNESCO) and local non-governmental organisations, to support water management in the IGP.
