Adapting groundwater of Asian cities to climate change: bridging the science and policy interface

The project is jointly implemented by AIT and Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), Japan in collaboration with Department of Groundwater Resources (DGR), Thailand, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE), Vietnam, Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA), Pakistan and University of Brawijaya (UB), Indonesia. It is funded by funded by Asia Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN) (

The project aims to formulate the adaptation strategies to reduce the vulnerability of groundwater resources of Asian cities to climate change through the collaborative efforts of scientists and policy-makers and relevant stakeholders (e.g. users) in selected Asian cities (Bangkok, Bandung, Ho Chi Minh City and Lahore). The workshop on 13-14 December will focus on sharing status of groundwater resources of the collaborating cities in the changing context; discuss on draft framework for groundwater vulnerability assessment; and review results of climate change projection of the study cities. This regional workshop will be attended by project collaborators from Indonesia, Japan, Pakistan, Thailand, and Vietnam. The first day of the workshop is open for all AIT community.
