  • Mid-Term Progress Report

    Since 2009, SaciWATERs Cap-Net Network (SCaN) has been successful to initiate collaborative activities with numerous national, regional and international organizations. In 2015, this has helped us to reach-out to a diverse group of stakeholders from academia, researcher, policymaking, donors and practitioners and community members. Realizing the enormous demand for capacity building in the water sector across the region, SCaN has expanded its activities aligning with Cap-Net 2013-2018 Strategic Framework to reach many more institutions and individuals.

  • Climate Variability and Its Impacts on Water, Energy and Food Systems in South Asia: 
Adaptive Water Management Approaches within the Framework of IWRM

    This manual is to equip the researchers, development practitioners and policy makers working on issues linking climate variability and change on water, energy and food security to help analyze the impacts of climate variability on water, energy and food systems in South Asia and identify the adaptive approaches for water, energy and food security. The manual deals with specific problems prevailing in South Asia. However, it would have more generic application, as: it would discuss the theoretical/ conceptual frameworks for analyzing the climate impacts on water, energy and food; and the South Asian region represents a wide variety of physical (climatic, environmental), socio-economic conditions, institutional and policy settings, and political regimes, which exist elsewhere in other parts of the developing world, such as Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America, and as a result the empirical studies identifying the problems and solutions would be very much relevant for other regions of the world.
