The INDICE project is funded by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in New Delhi through the Norwegian Research Council and is a collaborative effort between 5 research institutions – two in Norway and three in India – to study and try to answer these questions. The project started in August 2012 and will finish in 2016. The final project meeting will be in May 2016 and is a 2-day event.
The second day, May 24th, will be open to interested parties – glaciologists, hydrologists, meteorologists, other scientists working in India, or working in the Himalayas outside of India; those studying the societal effects of climate change and all others who are interested in this topic.
There will be presentations on the results from INDICE, and we would also like to invite groups doing similar work, especially groups funded by the INDNOR programme of the Norwegian Research Council, to consider participating in the meeting and presenting their results.
