The WaCCliM project works across local, national and international levels,
and engages with national stakeholders around water utilities in
Jordan, Mexico, Peru and Thailand
WaCCliM aims to:
Build capacity and strengthen public sector institutions and policies
Leverage financial resources for a low carbon climate resilient water sector
Implement scalable projects that measurably reduce GHGs
Disseminate ‘lessons learned’ and promote replication and upscaling of GHG reduction approaches on the national, regional and international levels
The WaCCliM Roadmap
Using a holistic approach that considers all stages of the urban water cycle – from drinking water supply, to wastewater management and the reuse of reclaimed water – and assessing solutions in a systematic way, the WaCCliM project helps utilities rethink their drinking water and wastewater operating systems to become more efficient, sustainable and resilient.
This allows utilities to simultaneously adopt energy efficiency and climate-smart mitigation measures. Helping utilities reduce overall costs through reducing energy consumption and GHG emissions, they become more resilient to climate change impacts, including water availability and water quality. Integrating water and climate agendas presents opportunities to unlock climate financing for utilities working hand-in-hand with their cities.
Measures on energy efficiency, water loss reduction, and energy generation from biogas, are being implemented with water utilities in Mexico, Jordan, Peru and Thailand to reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions.
