¿Qué pueden hacer las empresas de agua y saneamiento para combatir el cambio climático? ¡Reducir las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero!
Para empezar, es necesario realizar una evaluación que abarque todo el ciclo urbano del agua. ¡Esta es ECAM!
What can water and wastewater utilities do about climate change? Cut greenhouse gas emissions!
Actions start with an assessment that spans the urban water cycle. This is ECAM! Watch this video and learn more about this tool!
Digital applications to reduce non-revenue water and increase the energy efficiency of water utilities in countries with emerging markets and developing economies

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
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
