Adaptation to CC for the human right to water and sanitation: policies that are replicable, scalable, and resilient to future climate conditions.

The project will design a public policy that will turn 9 integrated urban water supply and sanitation systems into pillars of sustainable development.

For this, an innovative methodology will be applied to assess and manage climate/non-climate uncertainties and generate replicable and scalable strategies to increase their resilience to climate change, generating participatory, equitable (gender) and intercultural processes to strengthen and make visible local capacities.
