DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-34] With the growing need for water resources in agricultural, industrial, environmental and service sectors, comprehensive and multipurpose planning, development and management of water infrastructure should be prioritized both in the UN’s SDG agenda and in finance. In this session, we will discuss proposals for planning, financing, maintenance, and management of water resources and water infrastructure, and the current trends and proposals for the conciliation of conflicts in management units. It is important to have multi-objective planning and management both in the physical and temporal sense, including at the level of river basins, counties and cities, in order to reconcile the conflicts among various sectors including human, environmental, economic, and others.
