This report presents the results of setting up a hydrological model for the Krishna River in India and its initial calibration. First, some background information on the Krishna River and an overview of the hydrological model are given in this chapter. In the second chapter, the models? input data are discussed, including climate and climate change scenarios. The third chapter discusses the results of the modelling exercise, the fit to the observed historical data (i.e., the performance of the model) and the results of the model exercise using the climate change scenarios. The final chapter presents some conclusions and recommendations for future research.
