- Kurzbeschreibung<p>This book discusses the role of observatories in supporting<br> evidence-based decision-making. The book focuses on issues of data accessibility,<br> monitoring frameworks and governance processes with regard to environmental<br> resources - water, soil and waste. This publication highlights challenges related to policy-implementation<br> measures and examines current monitoring approaches, and illustrates how the<br> UNU-FLORES Nexus Observatory seeks to overcome concerns related to data,<br> monitoring and governance of water, soil and waste resources. In particular,<br> given that extreme weather events such as droughts and floods are predicted to<br> become more frequent in the future, it discusses the need for improved hazard<br> risk monitoring. It proposes risk indices for drought and floods, which measure<br> exposure and vulnerability to the phenomena through a multitude of<br> bio-physical, socio-economic and institutional indicators. Furthermore, the<br> potential for using openly accessible data made available through observatories<br> in decision-making aimed at improving food security is also discussed. It acknowledges<br> governments as key players in environmental resource management, and recognizes<br> that decentralization reforms, as well as the emergence of information and<br> communication technologies, have significantly changed the role of governments<br> in promoting sustainable development. The book is particularly<br> relevant for decision-makers, donor agencies, practitioners and students with<br> an interest in environmental management who are also keen followers of<br> discussions on the post-2015 monitoring agenda.</p>
