DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-75] 

Water heritage can connect us to traditional values and ethics, while also inspiring new technological and institutional innovations to address contemporary water challenges in ways that also enrich cultural and place-based identities. This session will highlight recent and ongoing best practices, such as integrating indigenous peoples’ understandings of rivers into environmental flow policies; designing water-centric cityscapes inspired by nature that go beyond river restoration; using public art to raise awareness about water; and developing participatory water governance institutions linked to the past while aimed at future needs: of sustainability, inter-generational equity, biodiversity, and human well-being.
