Full Project Title: H2O — T2S in Urban Fringe Areas
Full Call Title: T2S2016


Project Objective: The overarching aim of the H2O-T2S project is to better understand the plurality and context specificities of water related transformations in different types of periurban areas. By working in different research sites controlling for varied agro-climatic characteristics (Hyderabad, Pune, Kolkata), the project will identify transformation pathways depending on different combinations of factors that govern water management in periurban areas.
Call Objective: T2S has two major objectives:

To develop understanding of and promote research on transformations to sustainability which are of significant social, economic and policy concern throughout the world and of great relevance to both academics and stakeholders;

To build capacity, overcome fragmentation and have a lasting impact on both society and the research landscape by cultivating durable research collaboration across multiple borders, disciplinary boundaries, and with practitioners and societal partners. This includes facilitating the development of new research collaborations with parts of the world which are not often involved in large-scale international research efforts, notably low- and middle-income countries.
