  • Over 450 people in Italy and Spain have been engaged in the construction and validation of the requisites of WIZ (citizens, professional associations, managers of the water service,water. authorities, environmentalist groups, specialists and experts, universities and research groups)
  • The on-line platform of WIZ has been developed and tested and is now active with its two services, WIZ4ALL and WIZ4PLANNERS.
  • 10 pilot communities (their policy makers and their professionals and experts) currently use the WIZ4PLANNERS platform to manage authorization procedures and the relative requests for water service connected with urban development, comparing notes daily and dealing with the issues of adaptation to climate change, the pressure on water resources and the management of demand.
  • Over 80 procedures have already been undertaken successfully through WIZ4PLANNERS (IT)
  • WIZ has been institutionalized as an approach and practice by the 10 pilot communities in Italy, which have decided to use the WIZ approach regularly in their normal procedures.
  • The province of Pontevedra in Spain has collaborated actively with the project, becoming a promoter in its own towns and in the municipality of Baiona, which became the test case.
