Led by the Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA), our model is an evidence-based approach that incorporates the best insights from across the key technical specialties relevant to the water community and addresses the interconnections between the science, finance and operational components of the water community.  The final product is presumed at this stage to be an online document, but there have already been expressions of interest from AGWA partners to take these products and to use integrate them within software tools. And “final” is also presumed to be a “first edition,” to be explored, refined, and developed by the community of specialists and practitioners over time.

WOCAT, the World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies, was initiated nearly 20 years ago. Today WOCAT is a thriving knowledge management hub for Sustainable Land Management (SLM) providing information on water and land resources and their use. Through the WOCAT network different stakeholders can get information on SLM Technologies and Approaches improving water management. Hence, this information can be used to improve land management and to reduce pressure on the water resource improving livelihood at the same time. Many examples have been documented through WOCAT partners in the WOCAT database.

The Water and Land Resource Centre Project is a new project that seeks to create two Regional Resource Centres for Water Towers: one in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia for the Blue Nile Basin, and one in Nanyuki (with a node in Dar es Salaam) Kenya for Kenya/Tanzania.

The main purpose of the centres is to improve the collection, processing, and dissemination of hydro-meteorological and land management data in their respective regions. They are also intended to provide related information and knowledge on socio-economic settings, land use, and land cover.

SIROCO is a decision-support system which brings to water utilities the security of an optimal pipeline replacement strategy to maintain asset service levels:

  • Targeting critical pipelines
  • Improving and maintaining network performance
  • Controlling capital investments on the long run

SIROCO works with multi-objective optimization principle taking into account:

  • Network efficiency
  • Service continuity
  • Hydraulic reliability
  • Road trafic flow
  • OPEX
  • CAPEX

SIROCO is the result of 3 years of R&D, in partnership with a major French research institute. It has had several years of further improvement. SIROCO is available in SAAS mode if the utility wants to be the end-user, or through consulting services from G2C environnement.

The global assessment TWAP will capture the most serious water problems or emerging water issues in the globe. TWAP indicators will provide a tracking tool to assess the impact of interventions, and provide a means for more effective use of resources in addressing transboundary concerns and water conflicts between countries. ( target ii)

Many of these systems are shared by two or more nations and these transboundary resources are interlinked by a complex web of environmental, political, economic and security inter-dependencies.

To facilitate a global assessment, the Transboundary Waters Assessment Programme (TWAP) defines five categories of transboundary water systems: aquifers, lake/ reservoir basins, river basins, LMEs, and open ocean. The phase of developing the methodologies has been completed
