Managing climate risks: The tale of two water utilities (webinar on demand)

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:
• Learn about best practices utilities are applying to build resilience to climate change hazards and risks.
• Apply a process to identify resilience strategies.
• Draw from the experiences presented to assist the development of plans to respond to their climate hazards and risks

Flood and Drought management tools

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

Climate-resilient water safety plans: Managing health risks associated with climate variability and change

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.

Toolkit for Climate resilient water utility operations

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.

Vulnerability self-assessment tool

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.
