Safe Water Enterprises are decentralized, modular, and sustainable approaches providing safe water to communities. They have emerged as a viable solution to help meet the world’s drinking water needs – including to communities that to date remain underserved by traditional solutions. However, climate change is increasingly threatening water supply systems around the world, including SWEs, and necessitates that water systems build resilience to guard themselves against potentially devastating effects.
The event will therefore focus on 1) showcasing a methodology to analyze the climate resilience of the SWEs, 2) the potential to further enhance the climate resilience of the SWE, and 3) discuss how key stakeholders in the ecosystem can join forces to fully leverage the potential of SWEs going forward.
The event will kick off with main findings from a SWEs climate study released mid-2020, and sponsored by key stakeholders in the space, including Danone Communities, Aqua For All, etc. This introduction will present a methodology to formally assess the climate resilience of SWEs, using key concepts and lessons from analysis related to climate resilience for businesses in general and specific adjacent sectors. Combining water climate risks and resilience analysis, the study classifies the world into seven unique water-climate segments
