We are a consortium of several organisations and individuals that share the goal of providing free, rapid and global information on climate and water resources. Over the years, the partners have developed methods to combine and interpret water measurements made at ground stations and by satellites orbiting the Earth. They use these to produce up-to-date information on rainfall, air temperature and humidity, soil water, river flows and the volume of water bodies.
In 2022, they teamed up to provide comprehensive climate and water information via the Global Water Monitor. The online data explorer unlocks an extraordinary trove of climate and water data to anyone interested at no cost. The development of the Monitor made it possible to report on the state of our global water resources within a few days or weeks of the event. We produced a first annual report on 2022 to demonstrate that capacity.
