UN-Water Federated Water Monitoring System

  1. 1. UN-Water Project on ! Federated Water Monitoring System ! and Key Water Indicator Portal ! by ! Amit KOHLI ! Project Coordinator ! Karen FRENKEN ! Senior Project Supervisor ! Water Country Briefs Project – Diagnostic Workshop! Geneva, 9-10 December 2010! Federated Water Monitoring System and Key Water Indicator Portal Project!
  2. 2. UN Water data problems!   Total Water withdrawal – Tunisia 2001! UNSD ! != !2.14 km3/yr! AQUASTAT != !2.85 km3/yr!   Total population – Tunisia 2001! World Bank != !9 673 600 inhabitants! UNFPA ! != !9 539 000 inhabitants!   Official water withdrawal per capita has 4 interpretations! [221.2]; [224.3]; [294.6]; [298.7] (in m3/(yr cap))! FWMS allows agreement -> All report 294.6 m3/(yr cap))! ! ! !- or -! FWMS allows disagreement -> 294.6 ± 70 m3/(yr cap)! Federated Water Monitoring System and Key Water Indicator Portal Project!
  3. 3. Data provider - modus operandi! AQUASTAT validates & updates new withdrawal ! values ! Data may change or not ! Download latest population data (from another data provider) ! Review files/emails containing past harmonization issues, and country methodology notes ! Update latest population data into AQUASTAT ! Compare conflicting values ! Federated Water Monitoring System and Key Water Indicator Portal Project! AQUASTAT re-validate & updates new withdrawal ! values !
  4. 4. Data provider - improved system! AQUASTAT or partners provides new withdrawal or population values ! Review differences in interface containing past harmonization decisions ! Data may change or not ! All partners re-validate & update new withdrawal ! Values, with full understanding of all conflicting values ! Federated Water Monitoring System and Key Water Indicator Portal Project!
  5. 5. Federated Water Monitoring System & Key Water Indicator Portal! UN Water Agencies! Federated Water Monitoring System! (FWMS)! Federated Water Monitoring System and Key Water Indicator Portal Project! Key Water Indicator Portal
 (KWIP)!
  6. 6. Key Water Indicator Portal!  Purpose of KWIP!  One-stop location to find constantly updated key data!  Transparently denote data differences! Federated Water Monitoring System and Key Water Indicator Portal Project!
  7. 7. Key Water Indicator! Theme! Indicator! Formal data provider! 1 - Total actual water renewable resources per capita! AQUASTAT! - none identified! 4 - Total water withdrawals over total actual renewable water resources! Intensity of water usage! 2 - Storage capacity per capita! 3 - Importance of national expenditure for water supply and sanitation as a % of total budget! Water Availability! AQUASTAT! AQUASTAT! 5 - Sectoral withdrawals as a percent of total withdrawal! AQUASTAT! 6 - Comparison of evolution of inland Fish catch (capture)! - none identified! 7 - Share of blue, green, virtual water used to produce food in a - none identified! country ! 8 - % of population with access to improved water sources ! 9 - % of population with access to improved sanitation (JMP)! Effectiveness of water usage! 10 - Change in water productivity in irrigated agriculture! JMP! JMP! - none identified! 11 - Water productivity in industrial sector! 12 - Change in Hydropower productivity! 13 - Change of quality of freshwater systems! 14 - Urban wastewater treatment connection rates ! - none identified! 15 - Threatened freshwater species ! Environmental Performance! - none identified! - none identified! - none identified! - none identified! Federated Water Monitoring System and Key Water Indicator Portal Project!
  8. 8. Key Water Indicator gaps!  Water Availability (2/3 indicators)!  How can we measure ability to invest in sustainable water management?!  Intensity of water usage (2/4 indicators)!  What importance can be assigned to on-stream direct use of freshwater services?!  What is the relationship between trade and water use?!  Effectiveness of water usage (2/5 indicators)!  What is the water productivity in the industrial and agricultural sectors ?!  Environmental Performance (0/3 indicators)!  How to quantify environmental performance and the repercussions to health, economy, and environment?! Federated Water Monitoring System and Key Water Indicator Portal Project!
