To help meet the challenges emerging in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region, a pioneering programme was created to address critical knowledge gaps on water, climate and hydrology, and thus better understand the future impacts of climate change on natural resources, ecosystem services and the communities depending on them. Since 2011, HICAP has been working in five major Himalayan river systems – the Brahmaputra, Indus, Ganges, Mekong and Salween – across six pilot sites. Its interdisciplinary approach covers seven components: • Climate change scenarios • Water availability and demand scenarios • Ecosystem services • Food security • Vulnerability and adaptation • Gender and adaptation • Communications and outreach.
