The ARC partners are cooperating in the PREPARED project. The European Commission is funding the Collaborative project ‘PREPARED Enabling Change’ (PREPARED) within the context of the Seventh Framework Programme ‘Environment’. The PREPARED project originates from the WSSTP (Water Supply and Sanitation Technology Platform – thematic working group Sustainable Water Management in Urban areas.
The outcomes of the project will be used as input for the planning and rehabilitation programmes of the participating cities. Following on from that, the experience gained by the utilities, will be shared with other actors of the water sector in Europe. The PREPARED project started  in February 2010 and it is expected to end in January 2014. For more information, see website:
