DSS for climate-informed water resources management

Date: November 2021 (to be confirmed)
Time: 3-5 pm, Bangkok time
Location: Virtual

This is the third of the webinar series Decision Support System (DSS) for Understanding and Reducing Climate Risks. This webinar will explore the applications of DSS for collecting morphological data, managing water risks, and decision-making.

South Asia is vulnerable to the social and economic impacts of climate-related hazards. A World Resources Institute study estimates that floods alone could result in a US$215 billion loss per year by 2030. Therefore, adaptation measures, like DSS, are useful to decision-making on how to sustain water supply, reduce vulnerability and enhance the resilience of water systems to climate change.

The webinar is organized under the CARE for South Asia project. Speakers for this webinar include practitioners working in the water sector and experts from the region with extensive knowledge of the recent technological advancements in water resource management.

Objectives

  • Explore the role of information technology in water resource management
  • Discuss the operational challenges in decision making for the water sector in South Asia
  • Learn how DSS can assist in decision-making
  • Discuss the components of DSS for water resource management

Participants

  • Policy-level users of DSS from the water sector
  • Operational users of DSS, including provincial and local-level governments
  • RIMES, ADPC, and World Bank staff
