Climate Smart Utilities – Tools for adaptation under uncertainty
Organizer: International Water Association

IWA’s Climate Smart Utilities initiative is supporting utilities to strive towards achieving carbon neutrality while adapting to climate change. Adaptation to climate change impacts across a water system requires an understanding of the hazards that can affect the system and its vulnerabilities. This information can then be used as the basis for identifying and implementing adaptation measures.

This webinar showcases application of adaptation tools that can support utilities in adapting to climate change under uncertainty as an overall strategy to ensure climate resilience.

The focus in this webinar will be on bottom-up risk assessment approaches such as Climate Risk Informed Decision Analysis (CRIDA) and the Decision tree framework (DTF) which provides stepwise planning guidance for water resources planners, managers, and engineers to implement robust water management. Examples will be shared on how such tools can be used to identify potential risks and vulnerabilities to municipal water supply systems and to propose concrete adaptation measures for reducing future risk to water security.
