An investigation of water resource planning under uncertainty in the Cauvery River Basin in Karnataka: Uncertainty about the regional impacts of climate change and rapidly changing socio-economic conditions make long-term planning of water resources problematic. Robust Decision Making (RDM) approaches seek to identify strategies that work reasonably well across large ranges of uncertain future conditions. This research project will use the RDM approach to study water resource planning under uncertainty in the Cauvery River Basin in Karnataka (CRB-K), in southern India.
