Internationally, water resources are facing increasing pressure due to over-exploitation and pollution. To address such issues of water security, a suite of integrated water resource decision-support tools is being developed to guide water resource managers in making short- and long-term strategic adaptive operational decisions and to build resilience.
Both the tools and training have been trialled in the Olifants River Catchment since 2017. A mobile app (Flow Tracker) to track flow in realtime has been developed – a first for the region and country! We also strive to ensure that this DSS is embedded within a wider governance system for resilience building.
