Making SENSE of the Water value chain with Copernicus Earth Observation, models and in-situ data

Project description

Mapping global water availability and compliance to optimise use

Freshwater scarcity is expected to severely affect global food security in the upcoming years. Wise water distribution is now a priority. The EU-funded WaterSENSE project will address the immediate action required for documenting water availability and optimising its use by providing relevant mapping services at a global level. Information outputs combining Earth observation methods, hydrological models and local data will be widely accessible. Another add-on value of the project will be a ‘water auditing’ service, monitoring local use compliance against regulations and water rights. Initial applications will take place in Australia, the Netherlands and South Africa. Upscaling of WaterSENSE information services is anticipated with the use of advanced features like big data processing algorithms.
