The project aims to formulate the adaptation strategies to reduce the vulnerability of groundwater resources of Asian cities to climate change through the collaborative efforts of scientists and policy-makers and relevant stakeholders (e.g. users) in selected Asian cities (Bangkok, Bandung, Ho Chi Minh City and Lahore). The project also aims to develop the capacity of policy makers to assess the vulnerability of groundwater resources through customization and application of several indicators. Through e-conferences and regional workshops, communications among policy makers, scientist, and local stakeholders (water users) will be enhanced and the assessment results will be a baseline for future studies. The project and its activities are relevant to APN’s goals such as supporting regional cooperation, strengthening interactions between scientists and policy-makers, and improving scientific and technical capabilities of the nation. Similarly, the project also encompasses the scientific agenda (2010-2015) which covers the specific areas such as climate change and climate variability, resource utilization and pathways.
