PA31G - Science to Action: Enabling Science- and Data-Driven Water Decisions II Posters
Other Events

Data can inform and transform global and local decision-making. In water management, lack of useful data and context hampers our ability to understand water resources and decide how best to manage them. Managing water is increasingly difficult thanks to growing demand, population growth and climate change.

Today, water managers not only need more data that are useful, understandable and available long-term. They also need the right data – tailored to their needs, with the right resolution, latency and format, that can plug into decision pipelines. Moreover, organizations must be open to ingesting new data.

This session explores data-driven water management. How can silos between data producers/scientists and decision-makers be broken down? How are decision-maker priorities uncovered, then translated into needs-driven science? How is scientific uncertainty conveyed to policymakers? Speakers will share successes, challenges and lessons learned. Talks at the nexus of water and food, ecosystems, infrastructure or energy are welcome.
