During group meeting in April 2015, it was agreed that ACWUA-RBM will focus on the followings aspects:
- Overall Utility Performance
- Non-Revenue Water
- Energy Efficiency
The list in the frame beside illustrates the Performance Indicators to be collected and analyzed from all utilities participating in ACWUA-RBM.
ACWUA-RBM will utilize aquabench online software for data acquisition and data analysis. The technical team from ACWUA secretariat will be responsible on managing ACWUA-RBM within the support of the BM-TWG to help in them in promoting this benchmarking exercise, and invite water utilities from different Arab countries to join the first regional benchmarking exercise in the Arab region.
