INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Information Management System (IMS) is a general term for software designed to facilitate the storage, organization and retrieval of information.
We have experience building such systems for examples click here
DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEMS AND EARLY WARNING FLOOD FORECASTING
Early warning systems are an important component of disaster risk management strategies. In contrast to flood forecasting systems, which assess flood risk, the main purpose of early warning systems is to issue warnings when a flood is imminent or already occurring.

In engineering, a hydrological assessment is carried out to quantify the flow or volume of water in a river or stream, overland, in soils, in a pond or in a reservoir. This is used to assess the pluvial, fluvial or groundwater flood risk to a site or to evaluate the capacity of a soakaway, storage pond, reservoir or culvert.
Our skillsets allow us to be able to deliver this type of assessments efficiently. Click here to see some hydrological assessments we have done.
WATER RESOURCES ASSESSMENTS
Water Resource Assessment is a process of creating a common and trusted information base about the qualitative and quantitative status of different water resources and water services along with various human, hydrological and topographical factors which might affect these water resources.
Here's a showcase of what we have done in the past relative to this important hydrological practice.
Generally, flood assessments start with assessing the possible danger of the physical flooding itself or flood hazard. There are many dimensions (duration, velocity, debris, water depth, etc.) to the flood hazard, which makes this far from straightforward.
We have vast experience in this as shown here.
URBAN NON-REVENUE WATER PROJECTS
Non-revenue water (NRW) management allows utilities to expand and improve service, enhance financial performance, make cities more attractive, increase climate resilience and reduce energy consumption. In a water constrained environment, NRW management often offers superior cost-effectiveness compared to supply augmentation.

Crop monitoring & damage assessment crop health evaluation, as well as early detection of crop infestations, is critical in ensuring high agricultural productivity. Stress associated with, for example, moisture deficiencies, insects, fungal and weed infestations, must be detected early enough to provide an opportunity for the farmer to mitigate.
Here's an overview of what we have done in this arena,
Capacity building is the process by which individuals and organizations obtain, improve, and retain the skills, knowledge, tools, equipment, and other resources needed to do their jobs competently. It allows individuals and organizations to perform at a greater capacity
We have considerable experience with this in the various projects we have executed. Click here to see more on this.
INTEGRATED GROUND AND SURFACE WATER MODELLING ASSESSMENT
Integrated Water Flow Model (IWFM) is a powerful tool that can help water managers understand the historical evolution of the surface and subsurface water flows within their basin, and to plan the use of groundwater and surface water to meet future agricultural, municipal and industrial water demands.
Our expertise in this area is notable and we are well able to deliver comprehensive assessment(s) as we have done in the past. This can be seen here.
We also do research projects pertaining to various aspects of the water business.
Here's an exhibit of some.
CLIMATE CHANGE ASSESSMENTS
According to World Atlas, "Climate change indicators are used to track and communicate changes in the Earth's climate. The indicators represent the trend or state of certain societal and environmental conditions in a given area and over a given period."
Here's a portfolio of some of the work we have done in this area.
