El marco de contabilidad de agua WA+ (por sus siglas en inglés) es una herramienta que permite cuantificar y reportar el estado de los recursos hídricos a nivel de cuenca o unidad administrativa. El marco WA+ es basado en datos de sensores remotos y modelos hidrológicos globales, lo cual elimina la barrera de disponibilidad de datos en cuencas pobremente instrumentadas. El desarrollo del marco de contabilidad del agua WA+ es un esfuerzo multiinstitucional apoyado principalmente por cinco organismos internacionales: FAO, IHE Delft, IWMI, CGIAR, and UNESCO WWAP, las cuales buscan consolidarlo como un estándar para el reporte de la situación de los recursos hídricos. En este webinar se presentará el marco de contabilidad WA+, estudios piloto donde ha sido implementado, y se discutirá el potencial de su aplicación en cuencas de América Latina. Se discutirá también cómo el marco de contabilidad de agua puede contribuir a los planos de adaptación de la agricultura al cambio climático.

Altavoz - Dr. Gonzalo E. Espinoza

Dr. GonzaloGonzalo E. Espinoza Davalos is a researcher and junior lecturer of Water Accounting at IHE Delft in the Department of Integrated Water Systems and Governance (IWSG). Gonzalo is an expert in global land-surface models and hydrologic web applications, his research focuses on the spatial-temporal distribution and statistical analysis of hydrologic variables and the integration of large datasets into hydrologic applications such as drought assessment, river routing, and water accounting.


Gonzalo is currently working in a Water Accounting project funded by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. The project objective is to apply the Water Accounting+ framework to determine the agricultural water use and water productivity in Africa and the Middle East. The project is part of the efforts to achieve a sustainable use of water and to secure food production.


Gonzalo holds a PhD in Civil Engineering and an MSc in Environmental and Water Resources Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin. He’s PhD dissertation is titled “Large-Scale Statistical Analysis of NLDAS Variables and Hydrologic Web Applications” that was supervised by David Maidment. Gonzalo also received a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineer from the Autonomous University of Aguascalientes (UAA) in Mexico.
