GlobeWQ is embedded in the World Water Quality Alliance led by the UN Environment Programme with the challenging task to compile a World Water Quality Assessment by 2023 on current and future freshwater quality. The GlobeWQ project is a direct continuation of the pre-study that resulted in a snapshot of world's water quality and a road map for a worldwide assessment.  

The main goals of GlobeWQ are:

  • to develop, test and – in exemplary ways – apply an integrated and cross-scale analysis and evaluation methodology for water quality of surface and groundwater;

  • to provide novel data synthesis of in-situ measured, modelled and remote sensing based information;

  • to identify existing and developing threats to water security with focus on water quality.
