Kochi, Kerala, India
Introduction to IUKWC
User Engagement Initiatives
Past IUKWC Activities - Science Workshops
Developing Hydro climatic services for
Water Security (Pune, India – Nov/Dec
2016)
• Focused on climate information and
tools for water management
• Identified knowledge/data gaps and
opportunities for future
collaboration
• Enhanced links between scientists
and end users of hydro-climatic
services
Improving freshwater monitoring
frameworks and data for research and
management (Stirling, UK - Jun 2017)
• Explored the state of the art in Earth
Observation (EO) capability and data
products for freshwater monitoring
• Considered practical applications, for
example to improve water quantity
and quality monitoring for water
supply, agriculture and aquaculture
• Identified synergies and
opportunities to develop and exploit
EO capability for effective early
warning of freshwaters
Workshop reports and briefs published on IUKWC website
Past IUKWC Activities - Researcher Exchange Schemes
India to UK
• Ecosystems Services Assessment
and its Implementation in UK
• Quantifying resilience of water
infrastructure to extreme
precipitation events in urban areas
• Understanding the Water, Energy
and Food Security Nexus to Design
Technology and Policy Approaches
for Enhanced Adaption to Climate
Change in India
UK to India
• Consolidating Learning about
Stakeholder Engagement across
Research and Practice: Toward the
Development of Hydro-climatic
Services
• The use of passive sampling
devices to improve the monitoring
of anthropogenic pollutants in river
catchments in India
Exchange reports and briefs published on IUKWC website
Past IUKWC Activities – Pump Priming Projects
Project 1
• Ways of optimising
new hydro-climatic
services for
stakeholders
Project 2
• Current opportunities
and challenges in
developing hydro-
climatic services in the
Himalayas
Project 3
• Synergistic utilisation
of EO-based soil
moisture
observations:
Applications in the UK
and India
However, it is not all about new
research ideas and collaborations!
While individual projects have got
better at engaging users during
their work, a significant divide
remains between research
scientists and stakeholders
Co-design
Co-delivery
Assisting adoption
“Knowledge exchange conferences targeted towards specific stakeholders to
present the latest in water security science and technology”
• Focus on translating the results of current and past India-UK science into
policy/operational practice;
• Designed to bring together scientists with policy makers, regulators or
commercial companies to support:
a) the translation and communication of India-UK water science to users;
b) the collection ideas from stakeholders about where research outputs
could be useful and further extensions or innovations which are needed to
translate research into operational/policy use.
User Engagement Initiatives
• Online Poll amongst IUKWC Open Network of India-UK Water Scientists
to:
Community Designed Events
1. Select theme;
2. Prioritise
target
stakeholders;
3. Identify
expected
outputs;
4. Help design
the agenda.
“Improving freshwater monitoring
frameworks and data for research and
management for Regional Water Policy and
Management Bodies”
Aim of the Workshop
To present outputs of joint India-UK water security research to state government
stakeholders from across southern Indian states, with a view to helping improve:
• Water supply and management monitoring;
• Water quality monitoring;
• Ecotourism and biodiversity monitoring;
• Water for agriculture & irrigation monitoring.
Day 1: Joint India-UK water security research - Talks by scientists and Q&A
Day 2: Stakeholder centric: Current freshwater monitoring methods used and
sector specific gaps perceived in different aspects of state level
freshwater monitoring
Case study visit: Vembanad Lake
Day 3: Participatory group & plenary discussions:
• Potential uses of previous UK-India joint research in the sector
• Impact of using new science
• Further collaboration between researchers and stakeholders
needed to enable the sector to make use of the science
• Best way to achieve the above needs

Day 1
Joint India-UK Water Science – some background
Today’s focus is mainly on research funded jointly by the Natural
Environment Research Council and Ministry of Earth Sciences
However, others have funded/currently fund joint India-UK water
science collaborations including:
Natural Environment
Research Council
NERC fund excellent, peer-reviewed
environmental science that helps:
• understand and predict how our
planet works
• manage our environment
responsibly
• Meet society’s needs:
– Benefiting from natural resources
– Resilience to environmental hazards
– Managing environmental change
NERC Support
• 3,000 scientists and 1,000 PhD
students
• 1,000 research projects and 60
UK or international
programmes
• 55 universities and 20 research
institutes
• UK national capability: 4 ships,
7 aircraft, 6 polar stations, 6
data centres, 32 community
facilities
Partnership with MoES
• Scientific and technical collaboration in natural environmental
research including meteorology, climate variability and change,
oceanography, hydrology, natural hazards and biodiversity.
• Four joint programmes:
• Changing Water Cycle (2010-17)
