CHALLENGE BRIEF 2
Missing fresh water data
How might we revolutionize our approach to water data to empower decision making?
Canada’s lack of water data is a challenge when making key decisions for conserving and managing a valuable natural resource.
Our 2017 Watershed Reports identified that 110 of 167 watersheds did not have enough data available to assess their health. Where monitoring does happen, the data is often inaccessible due to it being proprietary or in an incorrect format for analysis and use.
This adds up to a system where decision makers do not have adequate information required to make informed choices. Without baseline and real-time data, we can’t ensure that our water is healthy now, or in the future.
