Urban water management
Water is a defining element in cities
The challenges in urban water management we are facing are large. Strong urbanization and changing climatic conditions put stress on urban water supply in many cities. The available water resources are under increasing pressure. The demand for precious space to store water is growing, both to prevent urban flooding in times of heavy rainfall and as strategic storage capacity in times of drought. Merely managing water is not enough; new ideas and approaches are required to fulfill all water demands and requirements now and in the future, in order to provide a high-quality living environment.
