Mapping Climate Exposure and Climate Information Needs to Water Utility Business Functions


Are you a utility manager seeking to understand, assess, and incorporate climate-related risks and opportunities into your strategic planning, funding, and investment decisions? Join us for a webcast based on the project An Enhanced Climate-Related Risks and Opportunities Framework and Guidebook for Water Utilities Preparing for a Changing Climate (5056). This project updated a 2020 framework and guidebook based on real-world insights from Denver Water and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. The framework is adaptive and flexible to help water utilities define their focus for a climate-related risk and opportunity assessment, ask key climate questions, map climate impacts relative to mission-critical business functions, and pinpoint risks and opportunities across those business functions. Utilities may utilize the framework and supplemental guidebook to establish a solid foundation to mainstream climate considerations across the enterprise.
