Transcript

  • 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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!
