Vice President Hamid Ansari talks on the impact of climate change on hydrological cycle and water

“In the coming years, the impact of climate change on hydrological cycle and the water availability in our country is likely to become a central question before national  planning agencies and CWPRS would have to play a major role in  developing knowledge, insight and skills to  meet the challenges in that regard ”    This was said by  Vice President of India Shri M. Hamid Ansari while delivering the  inaugural address during CWPRS Centenary Celebrations today at  CWPRS Campus, Khadakwasla, Pune.

While lauding the contribution of CWPRS over the years , the Vice President said that   the field of water resources management will have to continue to adapt to the current and future issues facing the allocation of water.  Shri Hamid Ansari said that with the growing uncertainties of global climate change and the long term impacts of management actions, the decision-making will be even more difficult. He added that it is likely that ongoing climate change will lead to situations that have not been encountered and as a result , new management strategies will have to be implemented in order to avoid setbacks in the allocation of water resources. He said CWPRS would be  required to design, implement and evaluate water management policies and strategies to achieve effective governance of water resources  in the country.
