Measuring Progress in the Implementation of Integrated Water Resources Management

As part of GIWEH Flagship project: “ Support 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda -Goal 6) ".

GIWEH hosted a water experts meeting to discuss the monitoring of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). GIWEH presented an innovative toolkit which can be used to quickly and easily measure the progress towards IWRM implementation. This initiative came as a follow up of GIWEH activity to support the 2030 which started by a side event within Budapest Water Summit, 2016. The event discussed the indicators for targets 6.5, 6.6 and 6b of the Sustainable Development Goals. Under the supervision of Dr. Tobias Schmitz and Dr. Nidal Salim, GIWEH is developing GIS and IT based systems to support national governments in the collection, collation and analysis of water data relevant for reporting on national, regional and global water goals.

GIWEH argued for a new way to view SDG 6.5 indicators. The meeting saw a lot of interest with debate leading to very useful insights which will be incorporated into the final product in the coming weeks.
