The 8th World Water Forum will have the question of water in cities as one of its central themes, focusing on integrated urban water and waste management. In order to reach that, three topics have been set to comprise the debate questions under Urban. The following topics should split into Thematic Sessions and other debate stages during the 8th World Water Forum in 2018:

  1. Water and cities
  2. The circular economy – reduce, reuse, recycle
  3. Treatment and reuse technologies

Considering the above topics about Urban:      

  1. What are the major challenges under each topic that concern civil society and communities and need to be raised for debate during the 8th World Water Forum?
  2. How those challenges apply to problems in your city, community or neighbouring surroundings?

Your feedback is going to support the organisation instances of the Forum in the definition of Thematic Sessions and other opportunities for debate during the event.

Hi Artur,

You raised a very important point that adaptation and mitigation measures needs to adopted very wisely keeping local context in consideration instead of just replicating.

Thanks

Faiz

Hi Artur,

You are right that both public and private sector needs to contribute and there are plenty of solutions as you mentioned. What do you think are the reasons that countries, specially less developed ones are not able to manage water in urban areas despite these solutions ? Where do you think we should plan our interventions first ?

Thank you

Hi Artur, 

You are right that local urban bodies have lack of capacity to manage the ever increasing urban growth and as a whole, government also lack a holistic plan and policy. I think this reflects somehow the negligence in past to important water services and planning. The attitudes are changing now but still a long way to go before we can start manage them sustainably.

Thanks

Faiz
