Interpreting climate information for water utilities (webinar on demand)

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:
• Identify what climate information and data is relevant and can be used in your planning and operations.
• Interpret and integrate climate information and data in your utility’s management of water resources and water supply.
• Use climate information to improve your water safety planning implementation and development process by including climate related hazards and risks in your risk assessment of the water supply system from catchment to tap.
• Contribute to the resilience of your water utility.

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

Climate resilient water safety planning (webinar on demand)

Learning Objectives

The participants will be able to:
• Understand how integrating climate information into water safety planning will help better identify and assess climate hazards and risks to your water supply system.
• Learn how the tools and guidance produced by WHO and IWA can support in identifying and addressing climate hazards and risks and contribute to the resilience of your water utility.

The Urban Water Utility of the Future: Peak Performance & Low Carbon (webinar on demand)

Learning Objectives

• Participants are aware of the opportunity of a low carbon future for utilities and the necessity to adopt a “low-Carbon” mindset.
• Participants will become familiar with the WaCCliM Roadmap, its five-step process and a number of critical components (which include data management needs and assessment tools, an enabling environment, a ‘bankable’ project proposal, and a monitoring plan).
• Participants have several ideas of practical measures that can be implemented by utilities to become climate smart, illustrated by case studies.
• Participants have a go-to resource to apply the five-step process and are energised to initiate action within their organization.

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

Welcome & Introduction

Get an understanding of how the ECAM tool is embedded in the WaCCliM project, and what can be expected of a training.

Setting the scene

This module offers a brief introduction to the role of energy efficiency and carbon emission reduction in the urban water cycle. The main sources of emissions will be identified and related to the operation of water utilities. The significance of adopting a holistic approach will be presented.
