Climate impact from nitrous oxide emission – a Danish case

One of the most important roles of WWTPs is the removal of nitrogen and phosphorous based nutrients, which otherwise, in large concentrations, leads to eutrophication of the receiving water bodies. In the later decades, EC’s nitrates directive and the Danish national water environmental strategies have hence led to a significant reduction of nutrients in the WWTP effluents.

Planning Water Resilience from the Bottom-Up to Meet Climate and Development Goals

The effects of climate change are most acutely felt through impacts on the water cycle and water-related extreme events.4 In order to ensure water for humans and the environment, while simultaneously meeting the world’s ambitious climate and development goals, decision makers and regulators will need to adopt a new paradigm for resilient water management that embraces the uncertain future ahead.

The document compiles eleven case studies from West African region, on various themes and issues in a work that summarises the key issues of water resources management, investment, water integrity, transboundary waters cooperation and climate change adaptation.
Although the structuring of the case studies is not the same, the data collection was done according to a single template by all the editors. The cases were developed and finalised according to the data available. This has the advantage of bringing out the specifities of each case with appropriate content.

Living with water: climate adaptation in the world’s deltas

The report is intended primarily for an audience of governments in delta countries: policy-makers, central and federal governments, and local governments including mayors and municipal councils. It aims to raise delta adaptation efforts up the political agenda by highlighting significant achievements and good practices where learning can be shared, supporting the policy dialogue on water adaptation and resilience, unlocking avenues for collaboration among policy-makers and technical advisors, and building awareness and capacity.

Nature Based Solutions for Wastewater Treatment

This book serves as a compilation of technical references, case examples and guidance for applying nature-based solutions for treatment of domestic wastewater, and enables a wide variety of stakeholders to understand the design parameters, removal efficiencies, costs, co-benefits for both people and nature and trade-offs for consideration in their local context. Examples through case studies are from across the globe and provide practical insights into the variety of potentially applicable solutions.

Adaptation & Resilience – Report following Water Climate Discussion Series Discussion (13 May 2021)

The Water Climate Discussion series is creating a space to come together and help the water sector build its leading role in addressing the climate crisis. The series is the result of close collaboration between water institutions who have come together recognizing climate change as an existential threat and wish to have a voice promoting a key message: water is climate.
This report has been produced based on the discussion lead by Lucien Damiba from WaterAid, Trevor Bishop of WRSE, and the participants’ interaction during the first discussion of the series: Adaptation and Resilience, on Thursday, 13 May 2021. Chapter numbers refer to chapter markers in the video recording of the discussion.
