This report presents guidance for the evaluation and selection of Water Demand Management (WDM) type technologies for the effective and efficient reduction of water consumption for different water stakeholders – householders, Water Service Providers (WSPs) and policy makers – in a technically sound, yet economically, environmentally and socially acceptable way for all stakeholders involved. The technical guidance is based on work carried out as part of the EU-funded FP7 TRUST (TRansitions to the Urban Water Services of Tomorrow) research project. The WDM interventions considered in the report have been evaluated largely based on the their overall water saving potential, cost- effectiveness, water-related energy use as well as impact on the reliability of supply/demand balance of Water Distribution Systems (WDSs).
