Dissertation title: 

The value of using hydrological datasets for water allocation decisions: earth observations, hydrological models and seasonal forecasts

Group: IHE Delft
Promotor: Professor Charlotte de Fraiture
Co-promotor: Dr. Micha Werner

Abstract:

This research has scientific and societal value. Scientifically, it contributes to a better understanding of how hydrological variables have to be measured and used at irrigation district and river basin scale and how additional information from global datasets can be incorporated to reduce uncertainties in surface water availability and enhance water allocation decisions. The value to society is the practical knowledge about which hydrological datasets are actually more beneficial than the status-quo and how it can help basin authorities and irrigation associations in reducing economic losses in planning and operation of water-productive systems, such as irrigation districts.
