Round Table meetings, July 7-8-13, 2020
Speaker: Alex Baumber, University of Technology Sydney
Venue: On-line – zoom platform – Tuesday, November 17 – 9:00 – 10:00am (CET)
The European Horizon 2020 program has funded a research and innovation project to boost the use of satellite data from the Copernicus programme in Australian agricultural system. Alex Baumber has held a very interesting webinar on the topic “governance of water scarcity in the MDB” which is very relevant for COALA project.
The webinar is based on a report developed within the Work Package 6. The webinar is divided into 3 main parts:
1) The key mechanisms by which Australia manages water scarcity, considering state and governments responsible for water licensing and trade rules;
2) The elements of the current legal and institutional framework at all governance levels that facilitate or hinder the use of innovative Earth Observation (EO) technologies; and
3) Aspects of the current legal and institutional frameworks that could be targeted for future reform to facilitate greater use of EO technologies and smooth articulation with other water management bodies.
