Water in the Arkavathy sub-basin: status, concerns and future under climate change

Water, Land & Society programme at ATREE is organizing a workshop as part of disseminating the outcomes from the recently concluded 4-year research project 'Adapting to Climate Change in Urbanizing Watersheds' (ACCUWa). The goal of the project was to understand the challenges for sustainable, efficient and fair water management in urbanizing contexts where increasing water demand, transforming land-use and limited infrastructure result in hydrological, water quality and social changes, and how future climate change will complicate matters. The research was conducted in Arkavathy and Noyyal sub-basins in South India, and the workshop will look at the findings from Arkavathy sub-basin, specifically on the hydrological, land use, socio-economic and governance aspects.
