Circular water-wise neighbourhoods are emerging across Europe. These pioneering projects are key in the water transition to more sustainable practices. These water projects share their combined experiences and gained knowledge in this Community of Practice to inform each other, and you. Are you a real-estate developer? Are you a civil servant, working for a Municipality? Are you a water professional? Are you a motivated citizen?

Several circular water-wise neighbourhoods in Europe are part of this community of practice. They differ in size, technologies, communities, governance structures but are neveretheless the most innovative and sustainable neighbourhoods in terms of (waste)water management, sanitation, and energy- and resource recovery.
By combining research activities we create more knowledge. Therefore, LIFE Local Water Adapt is part of several collective research projects and (inter)national consortia which are always open access.
Bringing knowledge into practice demands effective tools, frameworks and games for practitioners and researchers. The tools are open access and can be used by a variety of stakeholders.
We connect and meet via online and offline events. Have a look in the agenda to see when relevant activities are tacking place. Like webinars, site visits, symposia, recent publications and more.
This Community of Practice is co-funded by the LIFE Programme of the European Commission under the name of LIFE Local Water Adapt. Learn more why this project has received funding.
Climate change is known to cause ecological challenges, such as more extreme rainfalls and droughts. Water professionals are searching for solutions to combat and adapt to these issues in the residential domain, while, simultaneously striving towards more liveable and more inclusive neighbourhoods. The water cycle SUPERLOCAL is a best practice neighbourhood that combines sustainable drinking-, storm- and wastewater management innovations with energy, food, and resource recovery technologies on a local scale.
