Climate resilient water safety planning
Duration: 60 minutes
Climate change impacts, such as water quality degradation, water shortage and scarcity can severely impact the ability of water utilities to supply their customers. Therefore, water utilities responsible for drinking-water safety need to understand how climate change is affecting water resources and the ways in which this could affect drinking-water supply systems to inform adjustments to policies, programmes and infrastructure. This webinar will demonstrate options for water utilities to move towards climate resilience through water safety plans, which is a comprehensive risk assessment and management approach across each step in the water supply chain from catchment to tap.
