Improved Decision-Making for Water Security Using Water Accounting


Improved Decision-Making for Water Security Using Water Accounting

19 November 2020

9:00–10:00 a.m. CET / 4:00–5:00 p.m. Manila

In addition to water productivity studies, ADB Water has partnered with IHE Delft and IWMI to conduct water accounting studies in which remote sensing data are used to generate quantitative information and maps on major storages, fl ows, and fl uxes of water resources within a river basin. This information is critical to ensure all major water demands can be sustainably met, including for agriculture, domestic, energy, and environmental purposes.

In this webinar, IHE Delft and IWMI will share the results of the water accounting studies. The concept of water accounting and the Water Accounting Plus (WA+) methodology will be introduced, along with examples on how water accounting can be used in decision-making and a vision for the future of remote sensing-based water accounting. Following the presentation, there will be a Q&A session with the expert panel.
