Conducting climate, water, and decision research and developing innovative tools to bridge the boundary between scientists and decision makers and put our work into the hands of those whose concern is for the sustainable future of Greater Phoenix.
This communication based on the work of Graveline et al. highlights the importance of adopting integrated hydro-economic models to investigate the climate-water nexus and to assess the effects of global changes in terms of water scarcity, salinity and agricultural economics at a regional scale.
The State of Rajasthan is severely deficient in water resources. Climate change is expected to reduce rainfall and increase evapotranspiration, implying that major rivers will face acute water stress conditions. The purpose of the project is to start a long-term collaboration between the SMHI and the CURAJ in the field of water resources in India with focus on climate change impact assessment.
