This project combined state-of-the-art sensoring techniques and models with a participatory monitoring process with farmers and water authorities to create a common understanding of the main local challenges and possible solutions to enhance water quality.

Problems with water management differ between regions, but the process of jointly collecting, learning from and acting on data can be applied across regions.
