Fresh water resources worldwide face tremendous pressure, with many reserves at risk of depletion and pollution. It is crucial to carefully distribute the available water among various stakeholders, each with their rightful claims to water.
However, distribution alone may not suffice as there might not be enough water to meet all demands. Therefore, stakeholders must be encouraged to use water efficiently and effectively. For example, farmers can be supported in preventing over-irrigation to minimize pollution.
To achieve this, data-driven management becomes essential, helping us understand water supply and demand accurately. Moreover, precise data informs water governance policies.
The first step to effective management is measurement. Sensoterra sensors play a vital role in informing water authorities, municipalities, and other governmental organizations about the effects of their policies and interventions. These sensors ensure enough fresh water for all stakeholders and maintain healthy soil moisture for the growth of trees, plants, and crops.
Water authorities and municipalities rely on Sensoterra soil sensors to monitor soil moisture, facilitating data-driven decision-making and policy formulation.
