Sustainable, efficient and equitable management of water in cities

Submitted by Celine Dondeynaz on 10 November, 2010 - 11:36
Start 13/12/2010 (All day) End 17/12/2010 (All day)

Sustainable, efficient and equitable management of water in cities has never been as important as in today's world. Achieving important internationally agreed goals - in a sustainable manner - including the Millennium Development Goals in developing country cities, requires that we do better than we have in the past. It requires that we institutionalize and act upon lessons learnt in the arena of urban water management and urban development. Capacities to make change happen in water are typically diffused between many different stakeholders including the different publics in our cities. Therefore, increasingly coming to the forefront are the holistic approaches, methods and skills needed to enable successful cooperation and collaboration, including those communication techniques which enable stakeholders to improve their performance, exchange knowledge, views and preferences and act collectively with a feasible vision of the future, promoting effective implementation.
