The development of smart groundwater management system in the Kingdom of Tonga
The Kingdom of Tonga faces a wide range of difficult water challenges. For example, the supply and demand of water resources is regionally unbalanced, and the quantity and quality are at a high risk due to the pollution and depletion of surface water, as well as seawater intrusion. These challenges greatly affect Tonga, putting it in a very vulnerable status in obtaining sustainable water resources.

A real-time urban inundation forecasting system
Disaster risk is increasing globally, in part due to the increased frequency of extreme meteorological events, but further compounded by rapid urbanization and global population growth. Natural disasters due to torrential rainfall, like elsewhere in the Asia-Pacific, have increased in Korea and addressing this is increasingly relevant given the magnitude of loss and disruption. Notably, eight extreme floods and inundation damage events due to typhoons and torrential rainfall have occurred in Korea within 10 years (2005-2014). Urban inundation damages infrastructure, causes loss of life and property, increases the chance of waterborne epidemics, and can cripple city function.
