ICT4WATER: working together for a sustainable future
Due to growing population and economy, seasonal climatic conditions have changed, including extreme events as floods and droughts. This affects as a whole the availability of water resources at world level. ICT and water efficiency is a key policy issue with potential for new research area that includes decision supporting system for the measurement of water quality and quantity including the recycling and water reuse processes. This necessitates increased interoperability between water information systems at EU and national levels and efficiency of water resources management.
ICT4WATER is a cluster of ICT and water management projects, all co-funded by the European Commission. Our common goal is to increase efficiency in water management and enable greater cooperation among water regulators, operators and users by deploying solutions provided by Information and Communication.
