Risk-based Evaluation of Brahmaputra Water Development in Meeting Future Water Demand

Collaboration: Water Resources Planning Organization (WARPO)

The Institute is conducting a research study in collaboration with the Water Resources Planning Organization (WARPO) of the Ministry of Water Resources on the development of a stochastic model and risk-based performance indicators that would enable improved assessment of the options for development of the Brahmaputra river in meeting the long-term water demand in the country. This study is in line with the National Water Management Plan (NWMP) program on the long-term development of the main rivers for multi-purpose use, and will aid in updating of the NWMP. Other collaborating organizations in the study are Center for Environmental and Geographical Information Services (CEGIS) and Bangladesh Agricultural Research Council (BARC). The duration of the project is two years (2005-2007).
