It is expected that the project will focus on improving observation technologies or monitoring approaches that address known operational hydrometric challenges related to the measurement of water security, thus helping to provide the data and information necessary for water planning and management.
It is expected that projects clearly focus on supporting capacity building for the sustainable operational uptake of the technology or approach by NMHSs in the LAC region. The focus is on freshwater quantity and quality observations, including surface or groundwater water levels, river/stream flow velocities and discharge, soil moisture and precipitation.
While activities may be focused on particular environments (e.g. agriculture, mining or energy), proposals should have wide geographical applicability, with the potential to help improve operational hydrometry in many different countries around the world. All proposals must however demonstrate a clear pathway by which their outputs will deliver benefits to low- or middle-income countries.
