  2. 2. Challenges and Opportunities For Safe Water Supply in Mozambique

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Nelson Matsinhe; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; service quality; sustainability.; water treatment; water supply;

    Abstract : In Mozambique, despite considerable investments in the promotion of drinking water supplies, the access to quality water of sufficient quantity for the majority of people is still far from optimal. Current official figures report that nearly half of the country´s population and about 45 per cent of urban residents do not have access to safe water. READ MORE

  3. 3. Integrated and Probabilistic Risk Analysis of Drinking Water Systems

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; drinking water; risk assessment; decision analysis; water safety plan; water supply; multi-criteria decision analysis; dynamic fault tree analysis;

    Abstract : The vital importance of a reliable and safe drinking water supply makes efficient risk management necessary for water utilities. Risks must be assessed and possible risk-reduction measures evaluated to provide relevant decision support. READ MORE

  5. 5. Urban stormwater systems in future climates assessment and management of hydraulic overloading

    University dissertation from Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Karolina Berggren; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : Increasing global temperatures and tendencies of more frequent extreme weather events have been observed over the recent decades, and the continuation of this trend is predicted by future climate models. Such climatic changes impact on many human activities and hence the interest in, and focus on, climate change has increased rapidly in recent years. READ MORE
