A simple and easily accessible information system to help people use and manage water and their watersheds better!
All watersheds in the information system can be accessed via a global watershed map. When watershed locations are clicked the information for that watershed is presented.
The Watershed Information System can be used for sustainable watershed management, stakeholder engagement, awareness raising, education and water stewardship implementation.
The system has been used for example in Colombia to help producers, local communities, water and irrigation managers and conservationists understand basic things on their watershed and get them involved in watershed management action. The system helped local stakeholders to better understand the geography and locations of the watershed itself and water uses in it. In the South of Spain it is used to collect and order the information required for certification under the global waterstewardship standard.
