One of the first projects that allowed Mott MacDonald to bring climate resilience within resource management to mainstream prominence, was the DFID-funded water resource demand management assistance project (WRDMAP) in China. This could only occur because of Institutional and water law reforms that were implemented in 2002, which lay the foundation for long-term restructuring of the water sector. These reforms were necessary to support continued social and economic development within the country.


In an advisory role, we were able to guide the clients when they documented best practice case studies, integrated water resource management planning, reformed water tariffs and future-proofed the restructured water sector.


Through the expertise and advice that we provided, the clients improved livelihoods through equitable access. They also brought a more sustainable use of water resources as well as community level water savings.
