The WHOW Project

Objectives
Foster an understanding of the impact of water-related climate events, water quality and water consumption on health.

Provide the data layer to support the implementation of water and climate-related regulations and policies.

Promote the development of innovative services leveraging Linked Open Data and Knowledge Graphs through the WHOW toolkit.

Uses Cases

Linking data on bioaccumulation and human exposure to: chemicals and biological contaminants in marine waters; ingestion of contaminated fish products; and airborne exposure (Ostreopsis Ovata)

Linking data on drinking water quality, measured by compliance with new EU microbiological, chemical and physical parameters, with data on water-related diseases and pathogens.

Linking data on floods, sea storms, storm surges, coastal floods and drought to human health, alteration of the hydrological cycle, and agriculture and fisheries industries.

Co-creation

The program
Bringing together different stakeholders from the water and health sectors. Participation is open to a vast number of participants. The level of involvement may vary depending on users’ needs and objectives. Join us to discover how you can play a part in the WHOW community.

Knowledge
Graph

A European Open Knowledge Graph on water consumption and pollution, with data sources from different administrative levels will be developed. It will link environmental data to health data on disease diffusion. The KG will be a fully distributed system, sustainable over time, managing large amounts of data, where data providers will maintain full control of their data.
