The capacity of a society or system (e.g. ecosystem, farming system) to withstand a disruption, such as a drought or flood, and continue to grow is called resilience. Understanding the impact of physio-climatic characteristics on hydrological and agricultural resilience in a watershed scale is vital for managing these complex systems. In the present study, the resilience of a watershed is quantified through multiple hydrological ratios and agricultural productivity indices, such as, aridity index, runoff index, humidity index, water use efficiency, water productivity, and water storage efficiency (green water storage). We will use hydrological and statistical methods to quantify the effect of climate and catchment variables on the spatio-temporal changes in watershed resilience. We expect that the analysis will also identify a suitable spatio-temporal resilience indicator that can be possibly applied in different climate and land use sectors, where the water related policy making need to be developed for ensuring the sustainability.
