Connecting the dots…
The WaterCONNECT consortium involves international partners from private, public and research organisations working with clients to co-create local and customised solutions empowering water professionals to make better decisions. All these services are available in an online Water Control Room. This way, WaterCONNECT is helping to ensure precious water resources are sustainably managed in a water-safe environment and with sufficient clean water for us all.
Delft-FEWS and HydroNET as backbone of WaterCONNECT solutions
All around the world we are seeing more and more extreme rainfall, floods, water quality issues and drought due to climate change and the increasing global population. That’s why water professionals need to make responsible, time-critical decisions, based on recent observations and accurate predictions. WaterCONNECT offers worldwide access to reliable data, simulation models, forecasts and dashboards in support of decision-making processes for water management. The added value of WaterCONNECT is foreseen to be manifold: enhancing water security during periods of drought; minimizing costs and damage during extreme weather and climate events; implementing sustainable water use strategies; and improving the effectiveness and transparency of management processes by sharing relevant information with stakeholders.
