West Bengal Water Project: In conversation with SoGE alumni

In October 2023, four graduates from the University of Oxford School of Geography and Environment travelled to West Bengal and Sikkim in India for six weeks with the aim of sharing stories of communities’ resilience and adaptation to increasing water challenges.

“We were driven to understand how communities are adapting to shifting hydrological conditions, what innovative methods are employed to mitigate water-related risks, and whether West Bengal’s water managers can serve as global exemplars. Our partnerships with local organizations made this project successful. We are thankful for the support by the Oxford University Exploration Club and Expeditions Council, and other funders.”

The event will be followed by a networking break with drinks and snacks.
