Small Island Developing States (TWAP)

The SIDS viewer provides groundwater related information on Small Island Developing States. At present the system contains mainly information derived from the Transboundary Waters Assessment Program (TWAP) on 43 SIDS. The data include indicators describing the hydrogeological, environmental, socio-economic and governance dimensions of the SIDS groundwater systems.

The data have been derived from questionnaire surveys and an extensive desk-top study executed by the Simon Frasier University (Canada) and coordinated by UNESCO-IHP. Data in the system can be explored and analysed using a map based viewer, which is particularly useful to make comparative analyses of multiple SIDS. Additionally SIDS information sheets are also available providing clear overviews per SIDS. Further data on SIDS will be collected and uploaded into the SIDS viewer as they become available.
