Quantifying laws and regulations for better water resources management
EBA water indicators measure key legal elements that can be used to support sustainable water resources management practices. These practices include systems for understanding how much water you have, where, and who is using it, inclusive planning processes, allocation systems, and mechanisms to protect water resources from depletion and degradation.
The team is currently collecting updated and expanded information for 80 countries around the world and will publish this data in 2019. For more information or to share your expertise, contact Bill Garthwaite (Team Leader), at firstname.lastname@example.org.
