Water Accounting in the Litani River Basin

This report provides the water accounting study for Litani River basin in Lebanon, one of the key river basins in the country which is experiencing water scarcity. The water accounting has been carried out by IHE Delft using the FAO Water Productivity (WaPOR) data portal, to gain full insights into the state of the water resources in the basin for the period 2010 to 2016.


WaPOR V1 - Quality Assessment

This report describes the results of the quality assessment per data layer for each specific theme, as available on the FAO's data portal to monitor Water Productivity through Open access of Remotely sensed derived data (WaPOR 1.0). The quality assessment checks the consistency of the different layers and compares the individual layers to various other independent data sources.


WaPOR V1 - Database methodology: Level 3 data (Sub-national level - 30m)

This publication describes the methodology applied to produce the different data components made available at Level 3 (30 m spatial resolution) in WaPOR, FAO's portal to monitor Water Productivity through Open access of Remotely sensed derived data.


WaPOR Capacity Development series: Stakeholder mapping and needs assessment in Koga, Ethiopia

This document describes the stakeholder analysis and needs assessment carried out by IWMI in WaPOR pilot area in Koga, Ethiopia. The objective is to identify and implement locally appropriate solutions to build capacity to improve water productivity at the scheme level, which can be tested in Ethiopia and out-scaled to the other project locations. 


WaPOR V1 Database Methodology: Level 2 (Country and river basin level - 100m)

This document describes the methodology applied to produce the different data components made available at Level 2 (100 m spatial resolution) in WaPOR, FAO's portal to monitor Water Productivity through Open access of Remotely sensed derived data. The data is mainly derived from freely available remote sensing satellite sensors and products.


WaPOR V1 - Database methodology: Level 1 data (Continental level - 250m)

This publication describes the methodology applied to produce the different data components published in WaPOR, FAO's portal to monitor Water Productivity through Open access of Remotely sensed derived data.
