Transboundary Water Management Database

Ganges - Brahmaputra - Meghna River Basin Groundwater Study

2010-ongoing

This project includes a scoping study to determine the status of hydrogeologic knowledge and data availability for groundwater resources in the entire Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna River Basin followed by an effort to provide modern groundwater modelling as a tool to inform water resources management in the Basin. It also considers localized impacts of human development and climate change on groundwater resources near the international border of India and Bangladesh. Key issues addressed are the impacts on groundwater levels, on groundwater and surface water availability, and on the transboundary water flow of current irrigation practices, future development and management alternatives, possible sea level rise, and possible climate-change driven variations in recharge and river flows.
