Resource planning and management

We manage resources comprehensively in order to ensure water security

We manage resources comprehensively in order to ensure water security

Our mission is water security. To this end, we anticipate the availability and demand of resources, managing them in an integrated and sustainable way.

We rely on tools such as aquifer recharge with unconventional resources, predictive management with mathematical models of machine learning, nature-based solutions, and climate resilience models in sanitation networks and rural environments in the face of extreme weather events.


In this area of innovation we have different programmes through which we:

  • Increase water security through optimised planning of water resources 
  • Work on advanced aquifer management
  • Promote  resilience to extreme events
  • Promote nature-based solutions
