The Flood and Drought Management Tools project provides a methodology with online tools to facilitate the inclusion of information on floods and droughts, and future scenarios into Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) planning and Transboundary Diagnostic Analyses (TDA) and Strategic Action Plans (SAP), and Water Safety Planning (WSP). These approaches are used to support planning from the transboundary basin to local (water utility) level
This document is intended to help water suppliers and Water Safety Plan (WSP) teams who have already committed to using the WSP approach and are developing and implementing WSPs to gain greater understanding of climate change and how it can be considered and addressed in the WSP process. This document will also be useful to other stakeholders, particularly health and environment agencies who are supporting WSP implementation.
This toolkit provides methodologies for a water utility to develop three documents that are essential to improve its climate resilience: a vulnerability assessment, a climate-resilient business plan, and an emergency response plan.
The current edition of the tool, by its intent and design, focuses on climate vulnerability and risk assessment of the utility’s water resources
CREAT is a risk assessment application that helps utilities to adapt to extreme weather events by better understanding current and long-term weather conditions.
Conduct a drinking water or wastewater utility risk assessment:
Vulnerability Self-Assessment Tool – Web Enabled (VSAT Web) 2.0 – is a user-friendly tool that can help drinking water and wastewater utilities of all sizes to conduct a risk and resilience assessment.
