Decision support processes for participatory water management: building capacities in Latin America and the Caribbean

This event is an important component of the "Decision Center for the Effective Management of Water", a project of the water Center for Latin America and the Caribbean of the Tecnológico de Monterrey in conjunction with the Inter-American Development Bank and the FEMSA Foundation. In this Decision Center, organizers are creating a model for water management collaborative decision support in the region, based on modeling of physical and socio-economic processes, collaborative decision techniques and visualization tools in a space designed to foster collaboration in an immersive environment. This project also includes the renovation of the water network for Latin America and the Caribbean as a mechanism for the exchange of lessons learned in the implementation of processes of participatory management of water in the region, as well as seminars for specialists, decision makers and stakeholders.
