Principles for Water-Wise Cities

Climate changeUrbanisation
 

The IWA Principles for Water-wise cities help city leaders ensure that everyone in their cities has access to safe water and sanitation. One of the aims is to ensure that water is integrated in planning and design in cities to provide increased resilience to climate change, livability, efficiencies, and a sense of place for urban communities.

The Principles will be used to bring people together for resilient city planning and to guide the urban water revolution needed in cities of the future. By endorsing the principles on behalf of your city, your organisation or as a water professional, you are joining dozens in recognizing the importance of guiding the planning work for our future Water-Wise Cities. The time for action is now – Endorse the Principles: iwa-network.org/projects/water-wise-cities/
