The Strategy Workshop of the global project Water and Wastewater Companies for Climate Mitigation (WaCCliM) brought together its team, coming from Germany, Jordan, Mexico and Peru.

The event aimed at defining the strategic lines and activities of the project’s new extension phase, as well as the exchange of experiences among countries, the recapitulation of lessons learnt and team building. The workshop comprised several interactive activities, presentations and personal as well as professional exchanges among the team members, including a meaningful walk along the Rhine River to the Seven Mountains.

The active participation of the team allowed the strategic construction of future project activities to strengthen the assistance to water and wastewater companies in climate change mitigation. Additionally, the project defined the outlines to include the resilience component through the search for co-benefits in adaptation, as well as the sustainability of the project in its final stage in 2022. Likewise, strategic lines were set out for the implementation of the digital component in the urban water sector and the institutionalization of the elaborated tools. Furthermore, the team identified the opportunities for actions of the water sector towards the fulfillment of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) of each partner country.
