Sustainable Water and Wastewater Management in Urban Growth Centres Coping with Climate Change - Concepts for Lima Metropolitana (Perú)
The LiWa Project operates under the research programme "Research for Sustainable Development of the Megacities of Tomorrow. Energy- and climate-efficient structures in urban growth centres" (www.emerging-megacities.de) of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
It is one of the 10 Projects, which after the two-year preparatory phase (2005-2007), have been approved for the five-year implementation phase. The aim of the LiWa project consists on the development of concepts and procedures for the sustainable planning and management of water supply and sanitation in Lima, Peru’s capital city. As part of the project, integrative scenarios for the future water supply will be generated using the CIB method. Together with German and Peruvian Partners, effective, social-acceptable measures, that consider the climate change effects and the promotion of climate-efficient structures, will be developed.
First results of the project's scenario analysis are described at the LiWa homepage.
German project partners are: the Chair of Hydrology and Geohydrology (IWS) of the University of Stuttgart, the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ), the Leuphana University of Lüneburg, and ZIRN. The project’s general coordinator is IFAK e.V. Magdeburg. ZIRN is responsible for the coordination of the project in Lima/Perú.
