Water Data Management for Regional Community-Based Water Monitoring Groups
|October 18, 2021 at 9:30 am to 11:30 am|
|Online (Zoom webinar)|
Join the Collaborative Monitoring Initiative on October 18th for a webinar on data management and sharing, including how water data may be used in decision-making. Santiago Botero, Applied Innovation and Technology Manager for Living Lakes Canada, will be presenting on the Columbia Basin Water Hub.
This webinar is designed to provide introductory information to the Healthy Watersheds Initiative (HWI) Regional Water Monitoring Cohort and other groups with similar aspirations, as well as assist in “raising the bar” on how these groups manage their water-related data for use in decision-making.
Participants will gain knowledge and insights about storing, analyzing, interpreting, and reporting monitoring information so that it is trusted by decision-makers and can be used in land and water planning and decision-making. This includes statutory and non-statutory applications by local, provincial, federal, and Indigenous governments, industries, environmental non-government organizations, and individuals.
