Webinar Improving water quality management via better data

GIS Database

Information about Water Quality as well as Water Quantity is a prerequisite for sustainable water management. However, in Rural Areas characterized by areas of scale and huge distances between data collection points, providing the right information is not easy.


The webinar attended by about 40 participants discussed new opportunities for water quality monitoring, data management and data analysis and how clear descriptions of end-user needs will help strengthen ways for the market to contribute to better water management.
