Facing Uncertainty in Water Management: From Urban Water Supply to Agriculture
This webinar will illustrate multiple ways to approach and adapt to variability and uncertainty in cases ranging from urban to agricultural settings.

First, speakers will highlight the use of the Climate Risk Informed Decision Analysis (CRIDA) methodology for addressing urban water supply challenges in Asia. In Bangkok, Thailand and Colombo, Sri Lanka, CRIDA was used to identify potential vulnerabilities to municipal water supply systems and to propose concrete adaptation measures for reducing future risk to water security.

In the second presentation, speakers will cover the novel “Valuing Variability” concept that offers new perspectives on using water variability for food production in sub-Saharan Africa. Presenters will share examples concerning water management in the African drylands, amongst producers specializing in animal husbandry and crop farming.

To provide for an interactive webinar, each presentation will be followed by a Q&A session featuring questions from the audience.
