In 2010, the United Nations explicitly designated that "safe, clean, accessible and affordable drinking water” is not only a necessity, but also a fundamental human right. However, we live in an imperfect world, in which man-made activities and natural disasters create conditions that limit our access to water and expose us to dangerous water events. Organisations around the world have recognised this challenge and shown their commitment to creating, as the World Bank terms it, “a water-secure world for all.”IMGeospatial is honoured to be part of this movement and has partnered with three clients to address the biggest water-related threats to our livelihood: flooding, water scarcity and water quality. We provide business intelligence that enables them to proactively manage their water systems, build resilience in their communities and ultimately minimise risk and impact. We do so by automating the data pipeline, reducing the time and cost of turning earth-observed data into actionable insights.
