Water Health Open Knowledge

Water is life, and clean water means health.

— Audrey Hepburn

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The WHOW (Water Health Open knoWledge) project will develop the first European knowledge graph on water consumption and pollution and correlate environmental data to health data on disease diffusion to be reused for advanced analysis and development of innovative services.

WHOW will target use cases identifying and integrating the relevant set of indicators for the Sustainable Development Goal on Clean Water and Sanitation (SDG 6).

A co-creation programme is currently being launched
to collect further requirements, datasets and use cases. Interested stakeholders and users are invited to join us by completing the engagement form.

Water scarcity will increase, it already affects a quarter of the world’s population.
