The FDMT project is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) International Waters (IW) and implemented by UN Environment, with DHI and the International Water Association (IWA) as the executing agencies. The project is developing a package of web-based technical applications (tools) that can be applied individually or together to include information about floods, droughts and future scenarios into planning from the transboundary basin to water utility level.

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
The U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit is a website designed to help people find and use tools, information, and subject matter expertise to build climate resilience. The Toolkit offers information from all across the U.S. federal government in one easy-to-use location.
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.
The treatment and disposal of sludge sediments come from sewer cleaning process is the key for carbon neutrality of the whole system. This means that the sludge sediments should be recycled and beneficial reused rather than directly incineration, landfill or even laissez-faire. nevertheless, besides the environmental impacts of carbon footprint mitigation, relevant co-conflicting issues may include engineering cost, public perception, socio-economic, rules/regulations, and managerial aspects of cleaning process. They all receive excessive consideration from government authorities and stakeholders.
