DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-84] This session will not only try to have an overview of the recent developments in open source and big data science relevant to the water sector, but will also attempt to look into the future of ICT and do some “out of the water box” thinking. Water use efficiency is a key objective in an increasingly water scarce world and the potential of ICT in this field is great for reinforcing capacity. This session will encourage organizations from outside the water sector to give their reflections and future suggestions/predictions for capacity building.
