BINGO Partner publishes book on Climate Change, Water Supply and Sanitation

The book Climate Change, Water Supply and Sanitation: Risk Assessment, Management, Mitigation and Reduction (published September 2015) pulls together the final outcomes and recommendations from the PREPARED project, which was funded by the European Commission under FP7 - Environment and coordinated by KWR Water B.V. (KWR), The Netherlands, one of the BINGO partners.

The PREPARED project confirms and demonstrates the technological preparedness of water supply and sanitation systems of ten cities in Europe and also Melbourne and Seattle to adapt to the expected impacts of climate change and shows that the technological, managerial and policy adaptation of these PREPARED cities can be cost effective, carbon efficient and exportable to other urban areas within Europe and the rest of the world.

These innovative research results are very important to society and will be considered by the BINGO consortium, especially in what concerns the activity “Developing risk treatment and adaptation strategies for extreme weather events”. The final output of this activity will be a tailored portfolio of adaptation measures that will enable decision-makers at the six BINGO research sites to develop and implement strategies to cope with the impacts of extreme weather events in their own specific situation.
