Abstract

The proposed methodology for the implementation of a monitoring tool which is being developed as part of a two-year multi-disciplinary shared cost project is described in this paper. This tool aims at supporting decision-making and planning in water run-off management for sustainable development of water resources for human settlement and regeneration of desertification-prone areas in the arid climate zone. Remote sensing data and extensive ground truth data are combined with a hydrological network model in a geographical information system. The design of the GSIS is intended to support algorithmic combination of the various input layers and to generate thematic end products in support of the monitoring and planning of selected watersheds. It will also form the interface to the end-user. Finally, executed and planned activities in the first phase of the project as well as their initial results are described.
