WaCCliM – Water and Wastewater Companies for Climate Mitigation (Project Video)

Water and wastewater companies are typically energy intensive. This indicates excellent opportunities for improving energy efficiency and greatly reducing greenhouse gas emissions through more energy-efficient systems, as well as recovering energy, nutrients and other materials from wastewater.

The ‘Water and Wastewater Companies for Climate Mitigation’ (WaCCliM) project shows how the urban water sector can reduce its own greenhouse gas emissions while preparing for climate change. WaCCliM engages with the international water and climate community, with national governments and with water and wastewater utilities as well as their associations in Jordan, Mexico and Peru. Together with its national and local partners, WaCCliM is improving the carbon balance of utilities in these countries and beyond. At the same time, the project aims to ensure that utilities increase their climate resilience, reduce their operational costs, and maintain, improve and adapt their services.

Decarbonisation of water utilities- Tool for energy and carbon emission assessment (webinar on demand)

Learning Objectives of the Webinar:

After the session the participants:

1. Understand drivers and justification for decarbonising by utilities
2. Can explain the purpose and the basic applications of the ECAM tool and its relevance for utilities.
3. Are inspired to initiate steps to realize CO2 low water utilities and look for solutions to overcome costs related issues
4. Are aware of the big picture impact of mitigation and the importance of creating an enabling environment

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
