Digital-enabled green infrastructure for sustainable water resources management

Publishable summary: 

Despite the abundance of natural water resources, urban areas of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) are facing major shortcomings in the delivery of basic services such as safe water supply. The cause is manifold and includes the spatial and temporal heterogeneity of water resources, the negative water balance caused by overexploitation, and the insufficient human capacities and governance. The conventional solutions based on built "grey" infrastructure do not cope with the basic needs of the population so we urgently need appropriate, locally accepted technical options.
