ADB is providing technical assistance to support the National Water Mission of India's National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) for an in-depth assessment of the main areas of adaptation to climate change in three pilot sub-basins currently having serious issues of water sustainability, which may have significant implications to their resilience to climate change. The three major areas of concern in the selected sub-basins are: (i) alterations of winter snow-pack dynamics from climate change likely to cause impacts on downstream areas, as seen in Satluj in Punjab state; (ii) basins or sub-basins where groundwater is an important water source that has been impacted by climate change, as in Kshipra in Madhya Pradesh and (iii) coastal areas where sea level rise will have impacts on surface and groundwater and increased flood risk, as in the Cauvery delta in Tamil Nadu. Under the technical assistance, broad strategies have been developed for water resources related to climate change adaptation and the establishment of integrated water resources management (IWRM). For each of the three sub-basins, location-specific strategic frameworks have been developed to address present issues and projected requirements for adaptation that can be gradually scaled up to other sub-basins. These strategies need to be further refined, and detailed plans and design of sub-projects prepared. An eight year planning and investment program is proposed for each sub-basin.
