I-report on Urban Water Quality, Climate, and Adaptation

A research consortium operating within the NKWK Climate-proof Cities focus area has conducted a study into the impact of climate change and into potential side effects of adaptation measures on urban water quality. One of the results of this study is the i-report on Urban Water Quality, Climate, and Adaptation. This interactive document provides quick and easy insight into the potential impact of climate change and adaptation measures on urban water quality. Furthermore, it sets out measures that can reduce or resolve potential bottlenecks relating to water quality.

For whom?

The i-report is intended for water management bodies.

How can the report be used?

The document can be perused along several routes:

  • You can first explore the impact of climate change on water quality and subsequently click on the issues of waterlogging, drought or heat to view the effects on different guiding variables, or to view adaptation measures.
  • To find out more about the effect of an adaptation measure on water quality, go straight to the theme of climate adaptation measures.
  • Are you interested in improving urban water quality somewhere? Then start with an indicator that affects water quality, such as nutriment content, water temperature, or pollution. Each indicator is determined by different guiding variables. For each guiding variable, the report presents measures that can be implemented to improve water quality.

Who has developed the i-report?

The i-report has been developed by Arcadis, Royal HaskoningDHV, TAUW, National Institute for Public Health and the Environment RIVM, Deltares, and Climate Adaptation Services CAS.
