The ADB Water Sector Group, IHE Delft Institute for Water Education (IHE Delft), and the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) are conducting a two-part webinar on water accounting and water productivity analyses using remote sensing on 12 and 18 November, respectively. The two-part webinar will describe the concepts and methodologies, as well as present some of the results from the case studies and impacts on decision making. The webinars are part of a blended online approach, which will also include different knowledge products (such as reports, data, videos, etc.) that will be made available online through the ADB Knowledge Events website, IHE Delft's YouTube channel, and wateraccounting.org.
* FIRST WEBINAR POSTPONED: Unfortunately, due to Typhoon Ulysses (international name: Vamco), we are postponing today's webinar as many are affected in Manila. We wish everyone well wherever they may be and we will announce a new schedule soon.
In the first webinar on 12 November (*), we will share the results of the water accounting studies, in which remote sensing data are used to generate quantitative information and maps on major storages, flows, and fluxes of water resources within a river basin. The concept of water accounting and the Water Accounting Plus (WA+) methodology will be introduced, along with examples on how water accounting can be used in decision-making and a vision for the future of remote sensing-based water accounting from ACIWRM. Following the presentation, there will be a Q&A session with the expert panel.
In the second webinar on 18 November, IHE Delft and IWMI will share the results of their water productivity studies, combining field and remote sensing data to provide detailed information on how productive irrigated agricultural lands are compared to the amount of water consumed. We will introduce the concept and methodology of remote sensing-based water productivity, showcasing the results of three water productivity studies and examples of how water productivity results have impacted decision-making. There will be a Q&A session with the expert panel after the presentations.
These sessions are free to attend and open to the public. We encourage you to join us and interact with our team of experts to learn more about the methodologies, results from various case studies, and using the analyses in practice. You can register for one or both of the webinars here.
