Unlocking the value of water through digital transformation

Organizer: Anik Bhaduri
Format: Onsite-Online, Afternoon

The accelerating pace of changes in water systems and how they interact with other sectors are creating new risks to society. These are difficult to capture with existing observation and analytic infrastructure. The session will discuss the architecture of an evidence-informed and value-based digital operating framework for water across scales that will integrate effects of hydrological, biogeochemical, ecological, human health, cultural, social-economic behaviour, institutions and will help understand feedbacks in near real-time for all stakeholders. This will enable us to identify, predict and adjust responsible production and consumption behaviours under varying risk conditions based on evidence-based science.

Themes: Sustainable Solutions from the Global South
