The Federated Water Monitoring System (FWMS) and Key Water Indicator Portal (KWIP), implemented by AQUASTAT on behalf of UN-Water, aims to improve the clarity of water statistics:
The KWIP is a portal through which data can be represented in graphs, charts, and tables. Selected indicators are displayed, although more indicators or variables can be added in the future. The main purpose of the KWIP is to provide information in a simple format in order to maximize its widespread use. For more advanced users that would like to know about inter-agency harmonization efforts, additional data reported by several agencies is available only one click away.
This portal is backed by the FWMS, a federated custodian database containing data from the different organizations generating data relevant to the UN-Water indicators. Inter-agency harmonization can be managed via a complex mapping of variables, and can port data to the various widgets displayed on the KWIP dynamically. This means that as soon as the database is furnished with new information, the KWIP will automatically update.
This FWMS&KWIP improves UN Water's "Body of Knowledge", and provides a more consistent and transparent front to statistics.
