The Canadian Municipal Water Consortium set up under the auspices of the Canadian Water Network (CWN) - a federally funded Network of Centres of Excellence (NCE) water research organization - recently issued a Call for Proposals (CFP) for projects designed to integrate, share and apply existing knowledge in the areas of climate resiliency and financial sustainability of municipal water systems.

Municipal water systems are becoming increasingly vulnerable to damage from extreme weather events (such as floods, droughts, and wildfires, among others) and health impacts from storm and sanitary sewer overflows.

Additionally, aging infrastructure and a growing backlog of deferred maintenance requires innovative solutions and the implementation of robust financial models to ensure municipalities have adequate funds to maintain water services and reliable financing options to pay for future upgrades.

CWN’s Canadian Municipal Water Consortium is soliciting proposals for research projects that will synthesize, mobilize and apply existing knowledge that will enable municipalities to establish more sustainable and resilient cities. The deadline to apply for funds is February 5, 2016.
