Project Meet on Accompanying The adaptation of irrigated agriculture to climate CHAnge (ATCHA)

Project Meet on Accompanying The adaptation of irrigated agriculture to climate CHAnge (ATCHA) was held during  26th November to 1st December, 2018

III ANR ATCHA project meeting was held in ICWaR on 26Nov-1Dec, 2018.

Group photo1-1The ATCHA project aims to accompany the adaptation of farming systems to climate change by combining an integrated biophysical model with a participatory approach in a network of experimental watersheds in the Karnataka state. The ATCHA project is based on (1) the strong partnership initiated with the International Joint Laboratory IFCWS (Indo-French Cell for Water Sciences, involving the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore) which allowed to build an extensive database in the Berambadi experimental watershed (Critical Zone Observatory, ORE BVET) and (2) a specific Indo-French project (CEFIPRA AICHA, 2013-2016) in which an integrated model combining hydrology (AMBHAS), agronomy (STICS), economy (MoGire) and farmer decision (Namaste) models was developed.
