WP0: Project management and dissemination

The work is organised into a project management and dissemination work package (WP0) and four main work packages with defined key questions and deliverables. WP1 addresses hydrological modelling and feedback mechanisms from glaciers in the Himalayan region with the focus on one RCM run. In WP2 empirical-statistical downscaling (ESD) of available GCMs will be performed. Climate change related hydrological extremes will also be studied. The focus of WP3 is mass balance and related hydrological data from two key glaciers of the Western Himalaya. In WP4 baseline socio-economic scenarios for the downstream community will be developed, including an assessment of land use changes.
