ABSTRACT. – The assessement of the risk induced by climatic changes on wastewater systems from Cluj county and the associated adaptation measures. Water is an essential element for life and for natural processes. Therefore, it is very important to assess the major threats early and to adopt the most appropriate adaptation measures to climate change. The risk assessment was based on the guidelines developed by DG Climate of the European Commission in "Guidelines for Project Managers: Making Sustainable Investments Climate Resilient. By analyzing the results it was observed that the main impacts/hazards to which wastewater systems have low resilience in the future are associated with the increasing frequency and intensity of floods and extreme rainfalls. Nevertheless, the adaptation of waste water systems will be easier in the future by taking into account and applying the most appropriate risk mitigation measures.
Key-words: climate change, wastewater, adaptation measures, risk assessment
