The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) will host a webinar for the Canadian Sustainability Indicators Network (CSIN) to explore the topic of smart technology uses in sustainable development. The webinar is open to all participants.

The next stage of the digital revolution is diffusing across society, bringing together new sources of data with advanced ways of visualization and analysis. This webinar examines how these technologies are changing water management systems and how communities can manage the deluge of data.

Geoffrey Gunn from IISD’s Experimental Lakes Area will provide an overview of new technologies like blockchain and artificial intelligence and how water managers around the world are harnessing the flow of data to make better decisions.

Emma Wattie from the Atlantic Water Network will discuss the new Atlantic Datastream, and how digital infrastructure and citizen scientists work together to build a regional water quality hub.

This is the first in a series of webinars put on through the Canadian Sustainability Indicators Network (CSIN). CSIN is a Canada-wide network of sustainability professionals from private industry, government, and civil society organizations. Funded by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), CSIN hosts webinars, open all, focusing on themes of indicators use and sustainability. IISD is the secretariat for CSIN.
