Looking for case studies on sanitation and climate change

I am looking for good recent case studies (particularly from Africa and Asia) about sanitation or WASH programmes that are addressing/integrating climate change considerations. I am particularly interested in projects and programmes that go beyond looking at technology. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Re: Looking for case studies on sanitation and climate change

Dear Petra,

This is a recent publication of Water Aid. Does not really connect to climate change but can give you some perspective.

Re: Looking for case studies on sanitation and climate change

Thanks but as I said, I was looking for things on climate change.

Re: Looking for case studies on sanitation and climate change

Dear Petra,

we published in 2018 four case studies from our partner countries (Jordan, Mexico, Peru, Thailand) that summarize several aspects of our work in water supply / wastewater management and climate mitigation with urban water and wastewater utilities. You can find them on our website .*

Best,
Sören

Re: Looking for case studies on sanitation and climate change

Dear Petra,

as Sören has posted above, you can find WaCCliM case studies on the WaCCliM website

Link to Jordan Case 2018

How Madaba’s Water and Wastewater Utility is finding innovative Solutions to operational Burdens while reducing Carbon Emissions - In Madaba, the Miyahuna Water Company conducted a study to determine and address greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from its operations. Miyahuna operates both water and wastewater systems in the city. The GHG assessment was conducted using the Energy Performance and Carbon Emissions Assessment and Monitoring (ECAM) Tool. This highlighted that 90% of energy consumption is linked to the extraction of drinking water. In order to decrease the utility’s carbon footprint, several GHG reduction measures were evaluated. However, some are difficult to implement due to financial constraints. The most feasible option was the improvement of the pumping system. This would reduce annual electricity consumption by 35–50%.


Link to Mexico Case Study 2018

How Guanajuato’s Water and Wastewater Utilities are tackling Climate Change through Efficiency Optimization and Renewable Energy Production - In San Francisco del Rincón, two utility companies, SITRATA (Servicio de Tratamiento y Deposición de Aguas Residuales) and SAPAF (Sistema de Agua Potable y Alcantarillado de San Francisco), are collaborating on projects to improve their services and lower their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. SITRATA manages wastewater, while SAPAF is responsible for drinking water and sewage. With guidance from the WaCCliM project, both utilities have undertaken a strategizing and implementation process similar to that proposed in the “WaCCliM Roadmap to a Low- Carbon Urban Water Utility”. As a result, SAPAF have increased wastewater treatment coverage from 48% to 81% and improved the energy efficiency of their pumping stations. The magnitude of the increase in treatment coverage was by far the biggest achievement in GHG reduction.


Link to Peru Case Study 2018

Planning locally , impacting globally – How Water and Wastewater Utilities in Peru are Facing Climate Change - How to ensure water and sanitation services delivery under a climate change context? The climate change mitigation and adaptation plans (PMACC; Planes de Mitigación y Adaptación al Cambio Climático) are tools to address this challenge. PMACC identify main carbon emissions sources and higher climate risks throughout the urban water cycle, along with water utilities’ opportunities to boost a positive change towards climate neutrality and adaptation. Following a standardised methodology and supported by web-based tools, the planning process becomes quicker and generates a report to informing decision-makers. This planning approach enabled some water utilities in Peru to start searching for practical carbon emissions reduction solutions, such as water utilities in Cusco and Ayacucho. The PMACC initiative was developed and implemented collaboratively between WaCCliM.

Re: Looking for case studies on sanitation and climate change

Thank you Soeren. Unfortunately these countries don't quite fit with the regions we are looking at. But thanks nevertheless.

Re: Looking for case studies on sanitation and climate change

Dear Petra,

It has been a while since your post. If this is still relevant, I would like to point you to some work that was done by the Climate-friendly Sanitation (CFS) Project in Lusaka, Zambia (2016 to  2019), which focused on the improvement of approaches in onsite sanitation (OSS) and faecal sludge management (FSM) for the city of Lusaka with a climate change centredness approach.

The project worked closely with colleagues from the WACCLIM project that Elaine referred to in her response to this post. The work commenced in 2018, with a focus to integrate climate adaptation and mitigation measures within the utility’s operations. This was timely, as Lusaka was in the project development phase in the implementation of a multimillion-dollar donor-funded project  ‘ The Lusaka Sanitation Project’ which is being implemented by a water utility in Lusaka ‘Lusaka Water and Sanitation Company(LWSC)’ formally ‘Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company’.

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) through its CFS-Lusaka Project, supported the adaptation of the Energy Performance and Carbon Emissions Monitoring and Assessment (ECAM) Tool to not only assess emissions from water supply and wastewater treatment, but to also assess emissions from the FSM processes. Making Zambia the first country not only in Africa but also globally to assess emissions across the full-service chain of a utility. LWSC with GIZ support trained its stuff on the assessment of the utility’s greenhouse gas emissions and energy performance through the use of the ECAM tool and also completed a baseline assessment of its emissions and energy performance.

Currently, and with further support from GIZ, a scale-up of the use of the ECAM Tool is envisioned for at least 6 of the 11 other water utilities in Zambia. With LWSC as a model utility that hopes to further act on the outcomes of its baseline assessment to reduce its carbon footprint.

See here some tweets that could help you research further: https://twitter.com/wacclim_project/status/1101069338554048512 and https://twitter.com/fouwzi/status/1148967804688715776 

I am also happy to answer any questions or offer further assistance that you may require.

Re: Looking for case studies on sanitation and climate change

Hello Petra!
Ifakara Health Institute (IHI) in Tanzania did a kind of the same study in 2016-2018 with the title "Determining the Effectiveness of WaSH Interventions to Reduce Health Vulnerability to Climate Change in Tanzania" perhaps you can have a look at it. Maybe Tanzania can be an appropriate place for your research.

Re: Looking for case studies on sanitation and climate change

Hello Beda,

That sounds like an interesting study. Do you happen to have the link to the paper? and are you able to share it here so that other users including myself can have it for reference? Otherwise, you can attach it to your post as well.
