Brahmaputra River System

The Brahmaputra river basin forms a critical ecological lifeline of flora and fauna for the north-east states of India. There is a need for a multi-disciplinary applied approach for policy, planning and development and to provide R&D based, validated scientific input for river basin planning, management and development (scientific modelling, simulation, prediction) for Brahmaputra river. This can be done through robust scientific data collection and sharing, integrate satellite imagery and use such scientific data for sustainable and integrated development of North Eastern states of India.
