IUKWC WEBINAR:

04 February 2020

Type: National Meeting

The India UK Water Centre is hosting a webinar on two pump priming projects that it convened in the Indian Sundarbans, in response to the considerable water resources challenges that the people living on these islands face on a day to day basis.  The two pilot projects arose from the critical finding from the first IUKWC Grassroots Field Exposure Session held in the Sundarbans that there is very little understanding of both freshwater and ground water resources currently and under climate change conditions; this lack of information is exacerbating planning for water security.  
 
The first project, led by Dr Lalu Das (Bidhan Chandra Krishi Vidyalaya, India) and Dr Alexandre Gagnon (Liverpool John Moores University, UK), examined changes in freshwater availability in recent decades and their future projections under climate change. These modelling results were then examined in light of the input from the community on their current adaptations to water scarcity to better understand the impacts of changing water availability on people's livelihoods and to identify research and knowledge to action gaps.
 
The second project, led by Dr Gopal Krishan (NIH Roorkee, India), Dr Purnabha Dasgupta (PRASARI, India), and Dr Andrew McKenzie (BGS, UK), examined the rapidly degrading aquifer system, which has increasingly become a source of water on the island especially in the dry months, though very is known about the island’s aquifers. Building on work by PRASARI, the key aims of this project were to understand the practicality of artificial aquifer recharge, and in particular the injection of freshwater into saline aquifers during the monsoons for recovering in the dry season.  
Join the webinar to hear what the leads and research collaborators did on the ground, as well as what the key challenges and possible future recommendations are for water security in the Sundarbans.
