The Aspen Institute Energy and Environment Program in partnership with the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions are working together to convene a series of roundtable discussions on the newly released report Internet of Water: Sharing and Integrating Water Data for Sustainability.

Internet of Water (IOW) is the culminating report of the Aspen Institute Dialogue Series on Sharing and Integrating Water Data for Sustainability and is the Dialogue Series’ vision for a national policy framework that addresses institutional barriers to scaling the integration of water data and information to support sustainable water management. From May 2016 to February 2017, the Aspen Institute in partnership with the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University and Redstone Strategy Group convened this Dialogue Series with a select group of ~27 water experts, managers, academia and other representatives from the private and social sectors to assess the steps necessary to improve our water data infrastructure. To address this challenge, participants of the Dialogue aimed to formulate a national water data and information policy framework for sharing, integrating, and disseminating public data to support the sustainable management of water.
