In this project we aim to co-develop, with water management agencies, communities, and partner knowledge institutes and universities, the scientific evidence-base that is needed for the implementation of a sustainable water resources planning and policy in Colombia. We will focus our research on developing and validating methods for characterizing available water resources, and how these are then used within the context of the relevant policies in making equitable decisions that contribute to the sustainable use of water resources and protection of recharge areas and ecologically important areas, such as wetlands.
