Information to encourage participation – Ecuador

The country possesses numerous quantitative and qualitative data on water resources and uses. However, they are scattered, heterogeneous, and few are accessible in a standardized form as provided by various entities of national/decentralized level and by the water users themselves.

The "SI/GIRH" platform aims to facilitate access to data and information to encourage participation, planning, and good integrated management of water resources, with a friendly tool that can be used by all stakeholders. Developed with the technical support of IOWater, it aims to make data easy to access following simple, dynamic, flexible and economical procedures.

The dynamic character of the information is assured with web services, a geographic viewer and a catalogue of metadata that provides a comprehensive description of the data and information presented.
