Potential climate change impacts on hydrology pose a threat to water resources systems throughout the world. Changes to the
present climate system may affect a variety of eco-systems, socioeconomic sector and industry in addition to water resources.
Analysis, with long term historic data shows increase as well as decrease in temperature and rainfall. The course of variability is
significant at some places, because of which a wide range of variation takes place from year to year. Analyses of historic weather
data sets indicate rising temperature trends in most locations, with large year-to-year seasonal and annual variation around the
trend line. Thus, it is obvious from the studies in this area with rainfall and temperature that the understanding of the climate
variability is a difficult task. The Vulnerability Analysis is a method to analyze the response of a system to uncertain events or
?hazards?. The example of uncertain events includes floods, droughts, earthquake, tidal wave, dam failure, environmental hazards
etc. River basins are generally plagued by uncertain events like floods and droughts. Prolonged droughts increases water stress
and aridity in the watersheds again floods would result in wastage of available fresh water. The present research is an attempt to
use distributed hydrological modeling to identify the impact of such vulnerability on Teesta river system situated in the northern
part of West Bengal. The vulnerability was calculated based on water availability, virtual water, water footprint, green water and
water sequestration. The results may identify and educate natural resource managers about the regions which are most vulnerable
to climate change.
