WA1 ’Rethink the system’ is aiming to identify future challenges of the water supply system and the outcome is used as an input in other TECHEAU activities. In WP 1.1, trends and drivers for change have been analysed for several European regions and for Southern Africa, with respect to several SEPTED dimensions (Social-cultural, Economical, Political, Technological, Ecological and Demographical). Several dimensions were studied in more detail separately: risks, organisational aspects, and sociological aspects. Combinations of drivers will pose challenges to the water supply sector that must be addressed by developing adaptive strategies and multi scale systems for different regions. These adaptive strategies were developed in WP1.2. The adaptive strategies include source-to-tap solutions to cope with future changes. The adaptive strategies are based on the principles of (1) Integration, (2) Maximum Flexibility and (3) Consideration of Local Conditions, which can be applied in different dimensions.
