Water Accounting for larger river basins

  • Partners: International Water Management Institute (IWMI), Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), UNESCO-World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP)
  • Donor: Stichting IHE
  • Donor Programme: DGIS - UNESCO-IHE Programmatic Cooperation

The target is to develop under DUPC2 - with partners - an innovative open access system for water accounting of (transboundary) river basins. The tools as well as the data will be disseminated non-restrictively to a wide international water resources related audience. It should culminate into a semi-automated monthly measurement-verification-monitoring system with the flows, fluxes, stocks and consumptive use being determined on the basis of reliable and unbiased remote sensing measurements. The target is to provide an alternative to the expensive SEEAW water accounting system, and we will demonstrate examples of longer term water resources planning being based on Water Accounting+ information.
