Expert workshop on water resource and use assessment methodologies - Latin America
FAO Regional Office for latin America and the Caribbean, Santiago, Chile
1-2 December 2009
In order to be able to correctly interpret the information provided by countries and striving to maintain the highest quality of data in its database, the AQUASTAT Team undertook an exercise to develop a better understanding of the different technical methods used by countries to generate the reported information. This was accomplished by sending questionnaires asking for the methods used to generate the information reported at a national level. Subsequently a workshop was organized for two purposes: 1) for the AQUASTAT programme to attempt to address some of the more confusing or data-poor concepts from the questionnaire, and 2) to provide a venue through which water professionals could become exposed to different methodologies being employed in their area, and to develop bilateral/multilateral agreements to help each other reach their common objectives.
