RIMES to organize webinar for water resource management


Focusing on water resources management, the third of the webinar series on Decision Support Systems (DSSs) for Understanding and Reducing Climate Risks will be organized by RIMES on 29th November 2021 to provide an overview vis-a-vis water-related hazards and their impacts in South Asia, and the potential for a customized DSS to improve both water resources and risks management.

The webinar targets to engage planners, decisionmakers and development practitioners in the water resources management sector, as well as researchers, developers and implementers of decision support tools and other technological information platforms, to enhance awareness, as well as to obtain feedback and inputs that could be beneficial for onward development/customization of DSS for the water sector.

The webinar is part of Component 1, implemented by RIMES, of the World Bank-funded CARE for South Asia project, which aims to contribute to building climate resilience by improving availability of regional climate information and analytics, developing sector-specific climate resilience guidelines, tools and capacities, and promoting climate-resilient decisions, policies and investments.
