Why the World Thirsts for Smarter Water | Sustainable Cities Collective

Why the World Thirsts for Smarter Water | Sustainable Cities Collective | Water Management | Scoop.it

Margaret Catley-Carlson of the Global Water Partnership has said, ”We cannot create water, but we can manage it better, much better.”


We need to become much smarter about how we manage this precious resource and about how we collect, analyze and use water data. There are three ways we can become smarter about water management:  Instrumentation, Big Data analytics, and cooperation.

Find more details at the article link.

Cassie Knight's curator insight, May 24, 2013 8:20 PM

Wonderful resource to share in the classroom! I love this quote by Margaret Catley-Carlson of the Global Water Partnership: ”We cannot create water, but we can manage it better, much better.” Something to discuss with students and open their minds to different ideas that might be able to be done in the school or home environment. This resource is great to support in explaining the water cycle with students in class.

AfriCAN Climate, AfricaAdapt Workshop on Agriculture

AfriCAN Climate, AfricaAdapt Workshop on Agriculture | Water Management | Scoop.it

AfriCAN and AfricaAdapt recently hosted a workshop and technical tour on the topic of 'Agriculture, Climate Change and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).' The event featured panels focusing on concrete actions that can help farmers adapt to climate change.

The workshop, which took place in Dakar, Senegal, from 25-27 April 2013, saw the announcement of the First AfriCAN Climate award to Nnaemeka Ikegwuonu of the Smallholders Foundation, for his project 'Climate Change on Air.' The Project combines research, creativity, and innovation to raise awareness of climate risk management techniques in Nigeria.

AfricaAdapt is a network hosted by three African organizations, namely the Environment and Development in the Third World (ENDA-TM), the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) and the IGAD Climate Prediction and Applications Centre (ICPAC). AfricaAdapt aims to facilitate the flow of climate change adaptation knowledge for sustainable livelihoods between researchers, policy makers, civil society organisations and communities.

AfriCAN Climate is a project co-funded by the European Commission, which involves various partners, including the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Risø Centre.
