As linkages between water and conflict have received heightened attention, socio-technological advancements are increasingly seen as means to help relevant actors to identify, analyze and take steps to address water-related conflicts. In this session the Water, Peace and Security partnership will present its ‘Global Early Warning Tool’ to stimulate debate around Migration, Infrastructure, Community, Economy, Food, Governance, and Conflict. The Tool uses machine learning, remote sensing and multiple data sources to predict conflict events 12 months in advance. The session will start with a presentation of the tool. We will ask audience to investigate regions of interest. We will then compare findings and invite participants to share feedback on the tool’s functionality and features.
