Delivering Water Intelligence to Key Regions with The World Wildlife Fund

September 2, 2022

Climate change means water change. To adapt and plan, the world needs information on which to base water decisions, and yet most of the world’s rivers have no historical data records. Fewer still have readily available information about their current state and forecasted future. If we are to empower decision makers - conservation experts, water managers, energy operators, emergency responders, and every other person that touches water - in a future environment of water uncertainty, reliable and accessible data is crucial.

At Upstream Tech, we built HydroForecast to address this pressing need for water intelligence. We endeavor to create a global understanding of the past, present and future of water at a scale and level of accuracy never done before.
