DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-82]  As the title of this session suggests there are many different ICT innovations which benefit the sector and increase the capacity of water managers. Therefore, this session aims to have a wide array of cases presented. It will be a “market type” event whereby as many participants as possible can make a pitch; to demonstrate and advocate for a specific ICT related innovation. These innovations should help different stakeholders in the water sector to reinforce their capacity to better manage the resource.
