DESCRIPTION

[OS-RP-02] Extreme weather events which cause floods, droughts, and other impacts have major implications on the performance of water infrastructure and services, and the availability of good quality water. The occurrence of extreme weather events is increasing, and providing adequate services has to address cross-cutting topics which include scientific solution and implementation through public policies. Climate-resilient planning for water supply and sanitation services have to combine political and scientific efforts to be correctly applied and guarantee proper water supplies in catastrophic scenarios.
