On May 14, a World Bank—Latin America delegation on water resource management of the Hai River Basin took a tour of RADI. 

With the support of a GEF project on integrated water resources and water environment management in the Hai River Basin, RADI researchers have developed ETWatch for monitoring regional evapotranspiration (ET) with remote sensing. They also conducted research into methods for estimating water productivity, potentials and effects for water conservation, and water distribution quotas on the basis of ET with remote sensing, providing strategic research and an action plan for water resources and environment in the Hai River Basin with powerful data support and management approaches. The visitors were given a better understanding of the advanced technology for monitoring ET with remote sensing and production platforms for ET data. 

Mr. JIANG Liping, Senior Water Resources Specialist at the World Bank, Prof. WU Bingfang from RADI, and WANG Zhiliang from the Monitoring Center for Water and Soil Conservation in the Hai River Basin, delivered reports on sustainable utilization of water resources in the basin, Monitoring ET with remote sensing and its application in the basin, and constructing an ET data production platform, respectively. They had discussions with visitors on various topics.

Upon the invitation of China’s Ministry of Water Resources, the delegation, which was led by Mr. Ede Jorge Ijjasz-Vásquez from the World Bank and made up of 26 specialists on water resources from Brazil, Peru, and Chile, came to China to learn about the technologies and experiences of China in water resource management in the Hai River Basin.
