The speed of global change and the future uncertainties are examples of faced issues that demand a new and dynamic way to manage the water resources worldwide. The recent global agreements (2030 Agenda, Paris Agreement, and so) establish a path that demands the political, institutional and technical integration so that the integrated management of water resources can efficiently and rapidly inform with safe evidence the process of public policies. In this way, Big Data technology will be indispensable for a wiser and dynamic water resource management. Data collection, integrated geospatial archive, wise metrics and indexes will be more and more demanded to clearly inform policy makers with evidences. The session will debate the experiences and efforts of institutions in relation to adapt data bases and information to these new rules from the water resources management field.
