Watergy projects have saved millions of kWh of energy, and millions of
dollars in energy and water costs. The energy savings translate to significant greenhouse gas
emission reductions, making Wategy an extremely effective climate change mitigation strategy.
In addition, the Watergy program provides key climate change adaptation strategies, focusing on
making the best use of available water and planning ahead for changes in water demand and supply. The
“Climate Change Vulnerability and Assessment Guidebook” produced for the Lake Victoria
region is designed to be replicable in communities and municipal watershed management agencies
The development of cycling is associated with the transformation of the
urban mobility paradigm. Cycling, walking and public transport development go hand in hand. This will
result in positive co-benefits such as reduced reliance on fossil fuels, better health, improved road
safety and better affordability can be expected.
For over a decade, The Alliance’s Watergy Program has helped more
than 100 cities in 20 countries realize significant energy, water and monetary savings through
technical and managerial changes in water supply systems by providing consumers with quality water
while reducing water and energy waste. The accrued savings result in immediate improvements in
water service, increased water delivery, reduced water and energy consumption, and more revenue for
system upgrades and new customer connections.
While no funds are committed now, the Alliance is interested in working
again with regional or international organizations to bring the Watergy program and the Climate
Change Vulnerability and Assessment Guidebook to more cities.
