JASPERS has adapted the approach to climate proofing under the European Commission Notice "Technical guidance on the climate proofing of infrastructure in the period 2021-2027" to water and wastewater projects. The approach is supported by a case study.
The first document includes definitions of the key terms, background information, concepts, timing and step-by-step processes for climate proofing for water and wastewater projects, i.e., approaches to climate change mitigation (neutrality) and climate change resilience (adaptation) for these projects, an example list of possible adaptation measures, integration into environmental impact assessments, and tips for creating high-quality documentation. The document is based on the EC Climate Proofing Technical guidance and JASPERS and other best practices in climate proofing of projects.
The second document delves into the water supply and wastewater treatment aspects through a project example of how climate proofing should be presented, including climate mitigation and climate resilience aspects as well as a detailed assessment of risk and adaptation measures.
The documents will be updated when needed.
