The Water Utility Climate Alliance (WUCA) and other water sector partners are hosting a FREE two-day technical training for drinking water and wastewater utility managers and consultants. Guided by a dynamic agenda and expert trainers, participants will gain useful knowledge and practical skills for integrating climate science into all aspects of water sector utility capital planning and business processes, as well as communication skills for relaying this information to decision makers and other audiences. The training will focus on three important dimensions of building the resilience of water sector utilities: 1) fundamentals of climate science including sources of uncertainty to consider in long-term planning; 2) methods for adopting planning approaches for making adaption decisions in the face of uncertainties about how climate will change; and 3) communications best practices for building a business case for climate resilience.
