The present study analysed historical climate and hydrology trends of future climate change impacts over 18 demonstration basins in Asian Water Cycle Initiative (AWCI) countries. The Mann-Kendall test was employed for past trend analyses. The analysis showed an increasing trend for average temperature and a decreasing trend for average precipitation and runoff over Asia in the past 30 years . To analyse future climate change impacts, three Global Circulation Models (GCMs), i.e., CGCM3_T47,

The analysis projected increases in average temperature, precipitation and runoff over Asia in 2020s, 2050s and 2080s. By 2080s, the average temperature, precipitation and runoff over Asia were projected to increase by 3.7°C, 10.7% and 11.1%, respectively.
