Water Data for Planning and Decision Making
This interactive session will explore multi-level water data needs and approaches for putting it to use. Date needs for decision making vary for functions and at different scales among users, from the farm to the river basin, from landowner to regulator. After spotlights on challenges and initiatives in different countries, the session will feature a participatory discussion to formulate water data related issues and takeaways. Topics covered will include democratization of data, institutional landscape, community engagement, and monitoring to create sustainable water and food systems.
