Annual American Water Resources Association Conference

Lauren Patterson, policy associate at Duke University's Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, will present at the Annual American Water Resources Association Conference in Portland, Oregon, November 5–9.

At the Sharing and Integrating Water Data for Sustainability session (November 7), she will discuss a national framework for sharing and integrating water data for sustainability, presenting findings from a recent Aspen Data Dialogue report, Internet of Water: Sharing and Integrating Water Data for Sustainability. Such a network would allow for real-time transmission of water-related data and information among regional data-sharing communities, revolutionizing how water resources are managed to address water problems such as extreme flooding, scarcity, contamination, and aquatic system degradation. Other presenters will describe the value of open data from the user perspective, California’s role as a data producer and data-sharing community, and the role of the Water Data Exchange, a platform to share and integrate data on water use across western states.

Patterson will also present during the Sharing and Integrating Water Data for Sustainability session (November 8), which will focus on one of the primary findings and recommendations from the Internet of Water report: the importance of demonstrating the value of open and shared water data to meet water management needs.

Data Drought: An Assessment of Global Hydrological Monitoring Systems

As part of World Water Week Stockholm, August 27–September 1, Water Program director Martin Doyle will co-present Data Drought: An Assessment of Global Hydrological Monitoring Systems, August 27.
