UNEP, DHI, IWA Floods & Droughts

Target Audience

The webinar is targeted at water practitioners of all levels, including policy-makers, technical staff and water managers, as well as water educators.

Description

UNEP-DHI Partnership in collaboration with the International Water Association (IWA) and DHI is launching a series of technical webinars focusing on innovative approaches to Floods and Droughts planning and management for basins and water utilities. These webinars are primarily based on the outcomes of the ongoing Flood and Drought Management Tools project.

The aim of these series of webinars is to give insight to the role that innovative approaches can play in supporting floods and droughts management at all scales - from basin to catchment, water utility and industry levels. Presentations will cover a broad range of technical tools, emerging technology advances, as well as practical experiences in applying these tools and technologies on ground.

During the webinar, Oluf Jessen (Project manager, DHI) will give a presentation on the background on the use of satellite data in drought and flood management and it will be followed by Bertrand Richaud (Water resources expert, DHI) which will give live demonstration of an innovative data portal for floods and drought management .
