The India UK Water Centre (IUKWC) was established in 2016 in order to promote cooperation and collaboration between complementary priorities of NERC-MoES water security research. The Centre aims to establish a platform for, and legacy of, long-term partnerships and dialogue between Indian and UK water researchers, water policy-makers and water businesses. The Centre’s scientific scope is defined by five cross-sectoral themes: developing hydro-climate services to support water security; building cross-sectoral collaborations to understand the dynamic interactions across the water-energy-food nexus; using new scientific knowledge to help stakeholders set objectives for freshwater management; improving freshwater monitoring frameworks and data for research and management; and transforming science into catchment management solutions. The Centre’s objectives are to support UK-Indian water science through: engaging the community; facilitating partnerships and building capacity; enhancing knowledge exchange; supporting future India-UK collaboration; and developing effective communication platforms. In order to meet these objectives, the IUKWC’s portfolio has included activities such as, Science Workshops, Researcher Exchange schemes, User Engagement Initiatives (UEIs), Pump Priming projects, and Grassroots Field Exposure Sessions (GFES), as well as the establishment of communication platforms, including a fully functional website (, an Open Network of India-UK Water Scientists and active social media presence. This report outlines the activities undertaken by the project since it was established, highlighting its achievements and key messages for the future.
