Thursday - 9:00 - 10:30

THEME

Urban

ROOM

Room 27

DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-45] 

There seem to be an endless – and often confusing – combination of challenges and solutions when it comes to urban water management, particularly when it comes to cost. What are the benefits and trade-offs of centralized, semi-centralized, and decentralized systems? What are the human health issues to address? How does affordability factor in? Through a series of case studies, this session will explore cost issues including capex, opex, and asset management, as well as operation and maintenance and distributing costs among stakeholders. ICT will be discussed as an enabling technology to increase safety, efficiency, and accountability.
