Global Modelling Community – Next steps

3.00 – 4.30PM CET
Online event only


Presenting and discussing the next steps for further collaboration on joined efforts for global and regional hydrological modelling:

  • For the regional level, opportunities will be presented to participate in HydroSOS (Hydrological Status and Outlook System) pilot projects. 
  • On the global level, the first Annual Global State of the Water Report will start to get developed (for the calendar year 2021). This has been identified as a first collaborative effort of the global hydrological community to contribute to the State of the Water Report with a joined global status modelling product for a specific year before we move towards operational modelling.
