Monday - 16:30 - 18:00

THEME

Urban

ROOM

Room 27

DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-37]

Building up water-wise cities demands integrated planning design as tools for better management: cities that continue renovation, development and maintenance of territory by articulating urban design, infrastructure and community-based land management. A new vision requires a paradigm shift, considering water as a fundamental resource and favoring comprehensive vision of social responsibility, fostering participation of all. Sustainable financing models are just as crucial, especially in rapidly growing cities. Opportunities for low-impact urban development range from considering water as a major design element in urban interventions, to re-naturalization of water bodies, and new solutions, such as Blue Green - and nature-based solutions for urban drainage, aiming for livability, inclusiveness and resilience.
