The policy of IWM is to conduct applied research in collaboration with academic institutes and agencies likely to contribute and benefit from the research findings. Some of the completed research supporting the national planning are: Landuse Change upon Storm Water Drainage in Eastern Dhaka, Causes and Remedies of Southwest Flood 2000, Decision Support System for Irrigation Management, Bangladesh Flood Hydrology Viewer— an Internet based GIS Application. Prediction of erosion around Hatia & Sandwip with University of Tohuku, Japan, Improvement of Cyclone induced Coastal Flood Forecasting Tools with DHI Water and Environment, Study of developing a perennial Water body at Ashulia with Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission, Long Term impact of the Brahmaputtra, Right Bank Protection project on the Jamuna Morphology, Likely Impact of River Linking Project, Climate Forecasting Application in Bangladesh with Georgia Institute of Technology.
