In Chaps. 2 to 9, various Geoinformatic approaches have been presented, that comprise the interdisciplinary systems analysis of the natural environment and its human dimension applied in the BRAHMATWINN project. Together with the vulnerability analysis introduced in the previous chapter, they provide a comprehensive assessment of the BRAHMATWINN basins environment and a quantifying analysis of the mechanisms and impacts of climate change on the hydrological dynamics, the availability of water balance components and vulnerability. This holistic system approach will be completed in this chapter by applying Geoinformatics for adapting existing and developing new IWRM strategies within the context of socioeconomic vulnerability, institutional capacities and governance.
