Résumé
Located in the Niger River Delta, Mali is a country of Extremes : Where the dry north of the country receives less than 200mm of rain of year, the south of the country receives an abundance with up to 1400mm of precipitation. The government body responsible for developing national water policy and coordination of the implementation of this policy is The National Direction of Hydraulics (DNH) of the Ministère de l’Energie et de l’Eau in Mali is in the process of institutionalising quality data collection, analysis, and use for decision-making. We want to find out whether we can improve the sustainable and equitable water allocation, as well as the equitable and efficient water use in urban and peri-urban agriculture, by big data analysis of the longer term drivers and effects of floods and droughts, by using and combining new online media and remote sensing data sources, while managing and distributing the data through a multisided platform, that can be connected to multiple Client-side software.To take the further step in this, together with the partners we started working on a number of hypotheses on how such data could be of value, using the Theory of Change. At the same time we made a first inventory of which data could be used for this and which events can be extracted. The progress that we made you will find in this proposal. In this coming project we aim to : - Confirm and adjust the hypotheses that we made for the use-cases, and elaborate on the Impact that can be reached using the Theory of Change - At the same time (parallel), configure the data mining techniques and demonstrate the value that lies within the public data. - To finally make a proposition in a number of use-cases that can be supported in a multi-sided platform SAAS for event extraction from public data.
