The purpose of this event is to convey “Children’s (teenagers) Solutions” against water issues to the world.
3 boys and 3 girls, representative of Japanese children, make presentation about their solutions through continued discussions for three years with Japanese children gathered from all over the country. And they summarize more concrete solutions through discussion and exchanging the views with other children and participants of this event.
Japanese children are going to insist that children play a key role for solving the water issues. Their specific themes will be the prevention from water related disaster, protection on water environment, expansion of hands on safety experience in river, inheritance of water related culture.
For example, in some areas at the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011, school children had quickly evacuated from tsunami based on daily learning and training on disaster prevention. Almost of all people of their community watched their behavior and followed them. It is not exaggeration to say the children saved local community’s life. They make presentation on such a concrete example.
The participants of the event will understand that one of the important solutions is that you recognize children as one of stakeholders of water.

For effective flood management by using satellite monitoring precipitation data of GSMaP
Under the situation that water-related disasters such as floods are occurring frequently in recent years, establishment of effective flood early warning and forecasting system are inevitable to decrease damages. In order to issue flood warning and forecasting adequately, it is necessary to install rainfall monitoring network on the whole river basin and to establish flood run-off model. However, due to the lack of budget and human resources especially in the developing countries, such kind of system has not yet been established sufficiently.
On the other hand, it has become possible to acquire hourly precipitation data of the world from the satellite monitoring system which has been elaborated by Japan and the other developed countries. By utilizing these data which is available anytime and anywhere of the world, more effective flood warning and forecasting will be possible, that consequently enables decrease of damages on human lives and property due to water-related disasters.
In the above perspective, this Side Event introduces the present situation of satellite precipitation monitoring, and presents some development works on flood warning and forecasting by using satellite monitoring precipitation data of GSMaP. After the presentations, the brain-storming session is to be held for effective flood management measure for the future.

We are holding a Round Table by the participants based on topic suggestions related to the theme. First, we will carry out topic suggestions regarding Integrated Water Resource Management(IWRM) implementation and regarding the path to such implementation. Building on that, we will carry out a topic suggestion, including Participatory Irrigation Management(PIM), regarding water management at the regional level, which seems to fulfill a central role in connection with river basin environments. This will include, in particular, "good" models of cooperative and cooperation in the agricultural area and how to set up these activities. After that, we will have a session to discuss exchange views.
