WSI members supported options study for the water and wastewater utilities for climate mitigation (WaCCliM) project Chiang Mai, Thailand

Two WSI experts have recently supported The International Water Association (IWA) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in undertaking the project “Water and Wastewater Companies for Climate Mitigation” (WaCCliM) as part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI).

The objectives are to improve the carbon balance of water and wastewater utilities in three countries and to ensure that these companies reduce their operational costs and maintain or improve their services. The project is implemented from December 2013 to January 2019.

In Thailand, the Chiang Mai wastewater system was proposed as the site for the WaCCliM project.

The scope of work for the WSI experts was to provide recommendations to the Chiang Mai Wastewater System managed by WMA, in Thailand, on how to best reduce their carbon footprint per serviced population based on their existing systems and potential plans for future expansion, using a holistic water cycle approach.
