WaterProtect: innovative tools for drinking water protection in rural and urban environments

Piet Seuntjens and Paul Campling

(Submission #180)


WaterProtect aims to come to effective implementation of mitigation measures to improve water quality in rural areas. WaterProtect consists of 7 action labs where farmers, water managers, research and drinking water producers work together. Activities in the action labs include participatory monitoring, governance strategies and alternative financing, best management practices and collaborative tools to facilitate exchange of information. WaterProtect aims to install 13 mitigation measures, to have a full participatory monitoring started in the 7 action labs and to have hundreds of interactions through the webtools. The experience in action labs will be shared among the action labs and will form the basis for upscaling the information to the EU and to deliver concrete policy advise. In our presentation we would like to zoom in on the development of collaborative IT tools and apps for actors that make use of water quality data and landscape information including landuse, digital elevation models, hydrography.
