The water resources management needs to be exercised in a comprehensive hidrology system, that intergrates those who sustain it, those who use it, and those who might fall victim in case of water related disaster.
Over the past few years in Israel, the country's water shortage has become a surplus. Through a combination of conservation, reuse and desalination, the country now has more water than it needs. And that could translate to political progress for the country in the Middle East, one of the most water-stressed regions in the world. NewsHour's Martin Fletcher reports.

It's a proactive approach to maintaining an aging network while operating on an ever-tightening budget. The IBM Intelligent Water Platform enables insight and control over every facet of water management—from pressure, to consumption, to maintenance—so you can predict pipe failures, manage water loss and reduce costs, a critical step along the path to becoming a smarter city.
De corporate video Watermanagement maakt deel uit van de serie The Delta Approach, een korte algemene introductie van Nederland op de thema's Watermangement, Mobiliteit en Transport. De serie zoomt in op de voordelen die het leven in een delta met zich meebrengt. En natuurlijk op de kunst om ons land goed te beschermen tegen het omringende water.De video is bedoeld voor delegaties die het buitenland bezoeken en derhalve beschikbaar in de talen Engels, Frans, Duits, Chinees, Spaans en Nederlands.
We have built our cities largely assuming that water, when not of drinking water quality and properly contained in pressurized pipes, was mostly a nuisance: something to be avoided on roadways, kept out of basements, or piped to the nearest conveyance that could carry it away as quickly as possible. As a society we are rethinking these assumptions and looking more closely at the choices we make and how the actions we take affect the value of water. Mr. Quigley elucidates the complexity, scale, and hidden challenges in current urban water management as well as shows examples and live demonstrations of disruptive technologies including live feeds from intelligent and forecast integrated rainwater harvesting systems, combined gray water/stormwater systems, green roofs that think on their own,...

New concepts for a decentralized water management for the Middle East are being developed in the international research project SMART (Sustainable Management of Available Water Resources with Innovative Technologies). The Middle East is one of the worst water shortage regions in the world. Together with colleagues from Jordan, Palestine and Israel, researchers from the Helmholtz Center are exploring ways to stabilize the water supply in this region. The main goal is to use scarce resources in the best possible way, therefore enabling the reuse of wastewater cycles, while at the same time taking into account religious provisions.

Ambuja Cement Foundation (ACF) has undertaken water resource management as one of the key focus programmes to be implemented across states in India to create an impact on the environment, groundwater resources, agriculture and allied livelihood activities. ACF collaborates with various state Governments, local NGOs and academic institutions to implement various state specific water conservation programmes. Our work has also been assessed as a part of Ambuja Cements water accounting study which resulted in the Company being certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) as 100% water positive. This certification is a testimony to our efforts taken in bringing about sustainable water management in the community. This video showcases our contribution towards water resource management in Gujarat.
