      Id Title Abstract
      D2.1 Analysis of Stakeholders Requirements In urban water management there is an increase demand from the water providers’ and public authorities’ perspective to critically evaluate the existing water ecosystems at city level. To enable effective decision making at the entire city level, the Water4Cities project aims to develop the necessary models and associated platform for water providers and relevant stakeholders. This deliverable aims at gathering and structuring the stakeholder requirements for Water4Cities platform based on the general analysis of relevant stakeholders and project use cases.
      The deliverable presents the findings in the following order:
      - Identification and classification of a list of relevant stakeholders for the Water4Cities platform;
      - The description of the current situation of urban water management in each use case area, including the presentation of urban water management and factors that affect urban water management;
      - A description of high-level use cases and user requirements;
      - Preliminary list of user requirements for each use case;
      - Preliminary stakeholder taxonomy.
      D2.2 Use Cases, Pilot Scenarios and KPIs The aim of this deliverable is to specify the pilot usage scenarios, use cases and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), providing an initial insight into the operation and validation of the Water4Cities system, during the project’s pilots.
      D2.3 Technical Specification and System Architecture The aim of this deliverable is to specify the high-level system architecture of the Water4Cities platform, identify its main components and functionalities in line with the user requirements and use cases identified in previous deliverables. In addition, this deliverable provides an overview of existing background elements that are available in the Water4Cities consortium and may be exploited for the realization of the Water4Cities system.
      D3.1 Best Practices on Urban Water Management Systems This document presents the methodological framework that is established by Water4Cities aiming at facilitating the urban water management. Firstly, the two case studies urban water cycle parts that Water4Cities focuses are presented. Each case study showcases different specifications regarding the hotspots of urban water management, thus different system boundaries are set. Ljubljana case study focuses on urban run-off, while Skiathos case study focuses on water supply. The two case studies, being diverse, constitute paradigms of typical urban water management situations around Europe.
