The expected outcomes of the collaborative research project, which will continue through at least 2010, are (1) the generation of cutting-edge empirical data and theoretical insights into the current rate and magnitude of climate change induced glacier recession, shifting hydrologic processes, and human livelihood vulnerability and adaptation; (2) the refinement of rigorous and transferable interdisciplinary research methods and information dissemination strategies that have the potential to address the complexities posed by the uncertainty and variability of global change processes; (3) the formation of enduring partnerships that illustrate the critical value of linking leading academic research with the on-the-ground capacities of local civil society and governance organisations; and (4) the generation of an array of effective site-specific educational outreach programmes, capacity-building strategies, policy recommendations, and field projects that will assist local people and institutions in their efforts to adapt to and mitigate the rapidly worsening impacts of climate change, glacier recession, and water scarcity on human societies
