Effective water resources planning and management depends on the ability to illustrate and build water resources balance with respect to the various water sources (surface water, groundwater, recycled water) and uses (domestic, agricultural, industrial, energy) in a given spatial and temporal context of a river basin. The various sources, uses, and operational functions make up a water system with which basin administrators and decision makers can evaluate, tailor-made, and plan for multipurpose uses of water by taking into account changes to demand and supply due to factors related to climate changes, demographic, economic development, living standards and styles. However, with multiple sources (surface water, groundwater, recycled water) and competing uses of water (domestic, agriculture, industry, energy) under multiple factors (population growth, change in life style, climate change, economic activities), the planning process becomes complicated and limits the effectiveness of the decision for sustainable use and management of water resources.
A decision framework and tool with innovative technology to plan inclusively, develop water resources economically, allocate water optimally among competing users, and manage water resources sustainable by taking into account the dynamics of population growth, climate change and economic activities. Provide a quantitative assessment and analysis of water resources demand and supply in a dynamic (time varied) situation at local, national, and trans-boundary levels.
- Water policy development and implementations
- Optimum allocation of water resources among competing users
- Economical allocation of resources on investments
- Reduce cost and time for planning and management of system extensions
- System for integrating smart technologies for automatic water allocation & distribution (sensors, devices)
- Planning of water demand and supply with one or more sources and competing users, taking into account the dynamics of population growth, climate change and economic activities
- Analyze quantitatively existing and future water demands and supply
- Analyze water footprint of natural and/or industrial systems
- Indicate decision measures on new water allocations and investments
- Design and specify water needs and water extractions
- Supervise and monitor development of infrastructures for water storage, delivery, and use (irrigation, domestic, industrial, ..)
