Short summary
In the scope of the BMBF funded project "WEIN", an integrated system for analysis, monitoring and information at river basin level was developed, which provides relevant information for all stakeholders that are concerned with water resource issues. The main objective was to improve water use efficiency and hence guarantee a sustainable agricultural production. The pilot region, in which this desktop and web-based system was implemented, is the semi-arid Limarí basin in Northern Central Chile.
