Reuse and refurbishment of existing assets and materials is a great way to save capital carbon while meeting the changing demands of
Although water is an abundant resource, climate change is affecting the hydrological cycle. According to scenarios done by the Meteorological National Institute using PRECIS regional model, an important rainfall reduction with risk of droughts is expected on the Pacific Coast watersheds and the North, while an increase of rainfall with risk of floods is expected on the Caribbean Coast watersheds.
Costa Rica’s efforts to meet international agreements regarding mitigation and adaptation to climate change have been undeniable. The strong ecosystem conservation agenda of the country has significantly contributed to making climate actions more robust.
The report is intended primarily for an audience of governments in delta countries: policy-makers, central and federal governments, and local governments including mayors and municipal councils. It aims to raise delta adaptation efforts up the political agenda by highlighting significant achievements and good practices where learning can be shared, supporting the policy dialogue on water adaptation and resilience, unlocking avenues for collaboration among policy-makers and technical advisors, and building awareness and capacity.
This book serves as a compilation of technical references, case examples and guidance for applying nature-based solutions for treatment of domestic wastewater, and enables a wide variety of stakeholders to understand the design parameters, removal efficiencies, costs, co-benefits for both people and nature and trade-offs for consideration in their local context. Examples through case studies are from across the globe and provide practical insights into the variety of potentially applicable solutions.
This case study analyses the greenhouse gas emissions of the water and wastewater systems of Madaba, Jordan under business-as-usual (BAU) conditions and applies the ‘Methodology to establish baseline emission scenarios’ developed by the WaCCliM project based on the Energy Performance and Carbon Emission Assessment (ECAM) tool.
