Thursday - 11:00 - 12:30

THEME

Ecosystems

ROOM

Room 29

DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-57]

Water managers have a variety of technical solutions they can adopt to ensure the quality of water necessary for its competing uses and reuses, including ecosystems.  However, the challenges at the medium, small and micro-scale are often harder to overcome due to the lack of appropriate technology, availability of finance/investment and problems of scaling down from larger industrial water management/treatment processes, which are not always appropriate or affordable.  This session will address the transfer and scaling of solutions not from small to large, but from large to medium, small and micro-scale, such as small island states and urban decentralised infrastructure.
