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.

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,...

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.
Climate change poses a serious threat to the population of the Mahafaly Plateau, one of the most arid parts of Madagascar. A water management plan developed by the Worldwide Fund for Nature helps local tribes make agriculture more sustainable. It's a vicious circle: because of climate change, drought has become a serious problem on the Mahafaly Plateau. But at the same time, locals are clearing forests to use the land for farming, thereby exacerbating their environmental problems. The WWF is now assisting local communities in improving the management and use of the little water available to them.

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.

As droughts and shortages appear in the news more and more frequently, water resource management is becoming increasingly important. We've created an Internet of Things solution that makes it easy to monitor and control water systems at any scale. In this video, we show you how to build a water management application that monitors water levels in tanks, and then remotely refills the tanks when necessary. If the water volume in a tank falls below a specified level, the application will check the weather forecast using Yahoo! Weather in order to determine whether rain is expected in the area; if no rain is expected, a call is placed to the tank superintendent using Nexmo to allow him or her to remotely refill the tank from a reserve water source. https://temboo.com/iot-applications/water-m...

Episode Six -- Why the same amount of water in the Bow River does way more than it used to -- and will do even more in the future. Water is the lifeblood of southern Alberta and the Bow River is critical to the health of the Region. This educational series of vignettes, shot in spectacular High Definition, takes the viewer on a journey of Water Stewardship of the Bow River and how that stewardship affects life in the Bow Basin. Designed for both students and general audiences, the series looks at the importance of irrigation to life in Southern Alberta. In fact, irrigation feeds 40% of the world's population, and not insignificantly in the Bow Basin. Not many of us know the rich history of irrigation in Alberta and how appropriate stewardship of the finite resources of the Bow ...
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.
Water is a strategic resource for manufacturers and is an economic and environmental challenge.

The IUCN Water Programme is a trusted partner for action and knowledge on sustainable water management. This animated video was made to launch our new water knowledge portal: www.waterandnature.org, your one-stop shop for IUCN’s knowledge on sustainable water management.
http://thisisfarming.org "Most of our steeper ground had terraces installed 30 years ago...and terraces still have a place, even with reduced tillage. On the other end of the spectrum I deal with too much water on the low ground, and that's where we've tried to improve it with drainage tile." -Jed Olbertson, Beresford, SD

This creates economic, environmental, and human health concerns downstream. A prime example is evident in the Mississippi River Basin, within which the nitrate carried in drainage water is contributing to hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico. Drainage researc...
