The quantitative and qualitative sustainable management of natural resources (water resources in particular), as well as managing global change, are at the heart of national, European and international mitigation and adaptation efforts.

This event will present and contextualize new scenarios published in the latest IPCC report, with a focus on the impacts of climate change on the water cycle. This will be followed by presentations on the challenges posed by data sharing; on how satellite data can enrich in situ networks and promote the exchange of knowledge, experience, and expertise ; and on new tools and operational services.

Through a number of use cases and examples, the event will also highlight how Earth observation can facilitate and enhance water resources management (both in terms of quality and availability) and how it can apply to different water uses and contexts (agriculture, shipping, biodiversity, floods, droughts, etc.).
