PRESHINE : Pressure on Water and Soil Resources in the Nepalese Himalaya (2014-2017) – Olivia Aubriot and Joëlle Smadja

The PRESHINE project is part of the ANR research programme "Societies and Environmental Changes", édition 2013

The impact of global warming on water resources and human activities in the Dudh Koshi river basin (Everest region, Nepal)

Project coordinator : Isabelle Sacareau (Université Bordeaux Montaigne)

This pluridisciplinary research project (geography, hydrology, glaciology, climatology) sets out to compare climate data (melting of snow and glaciers, precipitation variability) with the discourses, uses and water resource management of the local population who have growing needs (domestic consumption, new irrigated cultures, micro-hydrolectricity development projects) on a territory henceforth governed by the tourist economy.

Permanent membres of CEH who contribute to this research project :
- Olivia Aubriot
- Joëlle Smadja
