In the POWER best practice repository we collect promising concepts to tackle water-related challenges in the POWER Cities in order to share insights from local leading examples with a global audience and to exchange ideas. The four main themes covered are the following:

  1. Extreme weather events
  2. Reduction of water consumption
  3. Variables related to water conservation
  4. Quality of water reuse

Under each theme a number of tags help you to browse more easily through the contributions - or you might explore the examples by city. The best practice examples are structured in two main areas: “Featured Best Practices” and “Community Contribution Area”. The first one features best practices selected and published by the POWER project and open for feedback and discussion to the world. In the second one, all visitors and users can contribute their own tips and examples of best practices as well as discussing them with our community of experts. The most active cities which contribute most examples and are engage in many discussions are awarded with golden, silver and bronze badges and listed among the Top 10 POWER Cities on the first page.
