Toolkit for Climate-Resilient Water Utility Operations


This toolkit provides methodologies for a water utility to develop three documents that are essential to improve its climate resilience: a vulnerability assessment, a climate-resilient business plan, and an emergency response plan. These three documents and associated practices are interconnected and should be implemented holistically to achieve optimal climate resilience. These documents require regular updating and, in the case of the emergency response plan, strength testing through annual desktop exercises. This toolkit was written primarily for medium to large water utilities in the Philippines (locally called water districts), but it can be used by any medium to large water utility worldwide with adjustments to local circumstances.
