Urban Water Footprint: a new approach for water management in urban areas

The objectives

The project activities contribute to:

- support environmentally friendly activities: the application of the Water Footprint (Wftp) Approach helps Municipalities in the definition of environmentally friendly policies, plans and strategies by quantifying the environmental benefits of the introduction of new technologies and activities; the involvement of water services companies and relevant stakeholders, such as citizens, is foreseen;
- promote environmentally friendly technologies: the promotion, diffusion and identification of innovative water saving and water treatment technologies in Urban Areas is one of the key activities of the project; through the Wftp Approach the most effective technologies and practices, to be applied in Urban Areas, are identified;
- economic benefits: better water management and better water use have positive impacts on water costs;
- environmental benefits: better water quality and more efficient water consumption have lower impacts on ecosystem;
- social benefits: better quality of water means better quality of life;
- a European wider common approach on water use: definition of common strategies on water footprint will contribute to promote transnational awareness on urban water management, saving and innovations.
