Himalayan Adaptation, Water and Resilience (HI-AWARE) Research on Glacier and Snowpack Dependent River Basins for Improving Livelihoods

HI-AWARE, one of four consortia of the Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA), is conducting research, capacity building, and policy engagement on climate resilience and adaptation in selected glacier and snowpack dependent river basins of the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region.

Climate change is already affecting the lives of over 1.5 billion people living in rural and urban communities across the HKH region and its downstream river basins. Climate change may be inducing shifts in the timing and pattern of precipitation, especially monsoon precipitation, and of snow and glacier melt runoff. It may also be contributing to an increase in the frequency and intensity of extreme events such as floods, extreme heat, and droughts. Coupled with demographic and socioeconomic changes, the impacts of climate change have major implications for water, energy, health, food, and nutritional security across the region.
