Coupled Human And Natural Systems Environment (CHANSE) for water management under uncertainty in the Indo-Gangetic Plain

This project will address four principal objectives:

  1. to build understanding of the hydrologic response of the coupled human-natural system of the Indo-Gangetic Plain (IGP) to current and future climate and anthropogenic pressures
  2. predict regional short-term monsoon rainfall over the IGP
  3. determine the dominant drivers of agricultural and urban water use, and ecological flow requirements in the IGP
  4. translate this knowledge into information used to guide and inform adaptive management of the IGP’s water resources.
