Program description

This course will provide professionals in the field of IWRM with practical tools and methods which are in-line with the recent advances in research and development and are directly applicable.

This course will provide professionals in the field of IWRM with practical tools and methods which are in-line with the recent advances in research and development and are directly applicable. Correct data, knowledge of hydrology, and proper modelling are the main requirements for the development of realistic integrated water management plans. The availability of modern data acquisition and analysis tools has greatly increased over the last few years while the inherent cost has dramatically reduced.

Organisations such as basin authorities dealing with Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) could benefit from these data acquisition and analyses developments. The course is developed for professionals in water and environmental management and related fields. It especially focusses on organizations working for ministries, water and environmental institutions (water management authorities, national environmental agencies), basin development authorities, NGO’s, universities, consultancy firms and research institutes.

The objectives of the course are:
Provide working knowledge on GIS and EO applications for IWRM; Demonstrate advances in the field of data acquisition and processing for water resources management using the GEONETCast toolbox; Demonstrate, through fieldwork, data collection techniques and remotely sensed data verification methods; Apply computational tools for water resources assessment and monitoring (SWAT); Apply computational tools for scenario development and planning (WEAP)

 

Subjects
Introduction in EO, Mapmaking for IWRM purposes, Spatial hydrology and analysis for IWRM using SWAT and WEAP.

Objectives
Introduce participants in the use of EO for data collection related to Water Resources, acquire practical skills in image analysis & map making for IWRM purposes.
