Key Water Indicator Portal
The KWIP is a portal through which data can be represented in graphs, charts, and tables. Selected indicators from the UN-Water Task Force on Indicators, Monitoring and Reporting are displayed, although more indicators or variables can be added in the future. The main purpose of the KWIP is to provide information in a simple format in order to maximize its widespread use. This portal should be used as a frame of reference to check on the latest information on UN-Water Indicators. For more advanced users that would like to know about inter-agency harmonization efforts, additional data reported by several agencies is available only one click away.
This portal is backed by the FWMS, a federated custodian database containing data from all organizations generating data relevant to the UN-Water indicators. Inter-agency harmonization is managed via a complex mapping of variables, and ports data to the various widgets displayed on the KWIP dynamically. This means that as soon as the database is furnished with new information, the KWIP will automatically update.
