Específicamente, el taller contribuye a: -Capacitación de profesionales en la aplicación de sensores remotos para una mejor gestión de los recursos hídricos -Entrenamiento en el software de código abierto disponible (R-scripts y Python) para aplicaciones sensores remotos -Difusión de métodos y herramientas basadas en la web para el uso de productos de datos de sensores remotos en regiones con escasez de datos en América Latina y el Caribe
  • 17/11/2015 Simposio y Capacitación Profesional 'Hidrología andina para el manejo de los recursos hídricos: conceptos y herramientas'
    La actual crisis de sequía en algunas localidades de la región de los Andes Centrales hace urgente la necesidad de predicciones estacionales y a largo plazo sobre la disponibilidad del agua. Las simulaciones de descarga confiables son especialmente importantes para el manejo de la irrigación en las áreas intensamente cultivadas de Chile Central y Argentina Occidental, como también para el suministro de agua de metrópolis como Santiago y Lima, además de servir a propósitos industriales. Quienes toman decisiones respecto al agua y los usuarios de ella quieren estar capacitados para elegir herramientas adecuadas para la entrega de tales predicciones y para evaluar pronósticos existentes. Por ello, el simposio y la capacitación apuntan a aumentar el conocimiento sobre los estudios hidrometeorológicos, contribuyendo a dichas predicciones en la vulnerable región de los Andes. Se presentan diversas herramientas de monitoreo, evaluación y predicción mientras se destacan las ventajas y desventajas de cada método. Se ofrecen unidades de capacitación sobre la aplicación de muchas de estas herramientas, además de una visita a terreno en la Cuenca del Mapocho. El simposio y la capacitación intensificarán el diálogo entre la política y la ciencia acerca de la futura disponibilidad de recursos hídricos en la región central de los Andes.

  • 19/11/2014 International Expert Symposium “Coping with Droughts” ‘Building a Community of Practice on Drought Management Tools’
    The occurrence of droughts in Latin America and the Caribbean has a large impact on societies and local economies, causing long-term consequences for countries and their population (IDB, 2000). Climate change scenarios indicate further decrease in precipitation in those regions already prone to droughts, such as northeast Brazil and central-northern Chile, but also threatens to affect regions that have less developed drought response and mitigation strategies (IPCC, 2013). This drives the need to count with effective management of drought risk, covering vulnerability assessment, drought monitoring and early warning, as well as institutional and policy components (Baetghen, 2010). Recognizing the importance of international collaboration to the development of effective drought information tools and the critical need for these tools in an increasingly water-stressed world, these expert meeting aims at creating a community of practice to support the development and use of drought information tools. This community will be embedded in regional networks, such as Aridas-LAC, the Center for Natural Resources and Development (CNRD) and the UNESCO Global Network for Water and Development Information for Arid Lands (G-WADI), in close collaboration with the Columbia University Global Centers. The Drought Information Community of Practice encourages dialogue and collaboration as a means to inform and accelerate the development and use of effective drought information tools. The community of practice allows all members of the group to share information and experiences with each other, providing members with an opportunity to exchange knowledge. It also creates an agenda to support students and researchers to identify new topics of research, connecting individuals from around the world and allowing them to work together on topics of similar interest. This first meeting of the Community of Practice will be organized around an expert symposium on 19 to 21 November, followed by a two-day training course for water related stakeholders. A broad call for abstracts will be launched for experts and scientists on topics related to droughts in semi arid regions (presentations and posters), with the aim to bring different networks together (G-WADI, U. Columbia Global Centers, Aridas-LAC, CNRD network)

  • 13/11/2014 HYPER Droughts
    Hydrological droughts and associated low flows have major economic impacts in Europe. Current global change scenarios suggest that the magnitude and frequency of droughts may increase in future decades, with important implications for water quality, the ecological status of European water bodies, irrigation, navigation and power production. The conference focuses on hydrological drought within the various, connected components of the water cycle: HYPER Droughts (HYdrological Precipitation – Evaporation – Runoff Droughts). The symposium brings together drought experts from various disciplines, including: surface and groundwater hydrology, climatology and meteorology, -(hydro-)ecology and water quality, geography and history, water management and hydrometeorological services. to compare the current status of drought research and assess the impact of drought for water resources management. The conference focuses on past, present and future drought at various scales (catchment, regional, continental and global scale) and provides a platform for discussing catchment studies in a regional context, and national/regional studies in a pan-European and global context.

  • 03/02/2014 The MWAR-LAC Coordination Meeting and Meeting on Addressing Water Security: Climate Impacts and Adaptation Responses in LAC
    The MWAR-LAC project (‘Managing WAter Resources in Arid and Semiarid zones of Latin America’) was initiated in 2012 to enhance the capacity of dryland countries to deal with climatic variability, drought and floods, and to build capacities on different levels (professionals, governmental agencies, general public and dryland communities) to tackle water management challenges in the Latin American and Caribbean drylands. During its first year of implementation, the project achieved multiple milestones and deliverables, as foreseen in the project programme. During its last year of implementation, its focus will be oriented towards the development of capacities and supporting the required tools for the follow-up project ‘Addressing Water Security: Climate Impacts and Adaptation Responses in Africa, Asia and LAC’. Therefore, a two day meeting will be held in Montevideo, Uruguay, to present ongoing activities of the MWAR-LAC project, as well as to discuss follow-up activities and to identify possible linkages with other regional activities on climate change adaptation strategies.
