The qualitative impact assessment provides an overview about the targeted sustainability objectives to be improved by selected technical intervention options available. Trust provides innovative instruments to assists in different stages of decision making processes at different institutional levels. The trust roadmap guideline provides a description of how transition planning efforts in Urban Water Cycle Systems (UWCS) can be organised and offers templates to support the working process. The roadmap guideline illustrates diverse aspects in water supply and waste water management in terms of sustainability with its five TRUST sustainability dimensions: social, environment, economic, governance and assets. The trust self-assessment tool [1] creates an initial interest on the matter by means of a rough estimation of the areas in need of further attention. Together with the latter, the rough impact assessment assists in directing the users to the appropriate TRUST tools to improve and reach the 2040 target. This report provides a list of urban water technologies and methods as well as the impact assessment method of the (expected) qualitative impact on sustainability criteria. The qualitative impact assessment provides an overview about the targeted sustainability objectives to be improved by selected technical intervention options available. The aim is to provide a generic exemplary impact assessment for evaluating the expected potential of interventions to improve the UWCS sustainability in order to assist in individual case-specific evaluations. It thus encourages a definition of intervention strategies by selecting different methods, tools and criteria with regard to the impact on the future UWCS sustainability and to assess the impact case-specifically for a given city. The impact assessment is suitable to assist in the backcasting step of the road mapping approach. The case-specific impact assessment results in a comparative ranking of assessed intervention options (techniques, methods or political instruments etc.).
