WaterMan is promoting water reuse in the Baltic Sea Region. In doing so, it adds a new element to water management that can make water supply more climate-resilient. The key actors in water reuse are local authorities and water utilities, for most of whom the topic is still new. WaterMan will provide them with the knowledge and tools to develop strategic approaches and implement concrete measures that will put water reuse into practice.

The capacity-building process involves an international peer learning process. Municipalities and water utilities from 6 countries, supported by research and development institutions/water experts, will co-create: 1.Sample water reuse strategies for selected model regions that combine measures for reuse of treated water, recirculation of retained water, and stakeholder and consumer acceptance of water reuse. 2.A set of complementary pilot activities for water reuse that represent typical use cases and that adapt, test and validate specific solutions for use in BSR. The results are processed into a "Toolkit for Water Reuse in the BSR." It gives other local authorities and water companies specific guidance on how to support water reuse and is proactively and widely disseminated.

Geographically, WaterMan focuses on the southern parts of the BSR (southeastern SE, DK, DE, PL, LT, LV, EE). This focus on homogeneous geology and landscape and landscape will make partnership learning and knowledge transfer more effective.

The core of the WaterMan partnership is made up of "practical" partners from the local level (local authorities, water utilities), who will become "leaders" in promoting water reuse in the Baltic Sea Region. In the project, they work with experts in the field, who provide them with the necessary knowledge that supports them in disseminating the project results to other interested local authorities and water supply companies in the Baltic Sea Region.
