The Ganges basin provides essential water for drinking, irrigation, industrial use and power generation. Global climate change will affect the water availability in the basin and inevitably intensify the competition for water among major users, particularly from thermal power generation. Knowledge on the spatial distribution of water supply-demand...

The Ganges basin provides essential water for drinking, irrigation, industrial use and cooling of power generation facilities. Changes in the water availability induced by global climate change will impact on economic development as well as human life in this basin and beyond. Water competition among major consumers will become fiercer in the...
Discussion Paper
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were designed to be “integrated and indivisible, balanc[ing] the three dimensions of sustainable development." The growing need for integration has given rise to a number of tools and research that can help capture synergies and avoid trade-offs across goals and targets. These include tools that employ...

Water and energy are two fundamental elements for achieving sustainable development in South Asia, a region facing many challenges of achieving the sustainable development goals under resource constraints. Water and energy are inherently inter‐dependent which requires a nexus perspective to address their synergy. However, sectoral approaches have...

Accurate mapping of glaciers is important for management of water resources, studying glacier mass-balance, and monitoring glacier health. However, many glaciers are partially covered by debris of varying thicknesses, and these debris-covered glacier areas are difficult to clearly distinguish from the adjacent valley rock using optical remote...
