#SIWISofa: Addressing the social component of urban water management?

Wednesday 31 August | 09.00-09.30 | Room: -

Full coverage with 24/7 safe water supply is  demanding a lot more than financing infrastructures: it needs commitment at all levels of the society:

  • Political champions have to make disruptive decisions and ensure that they are sustained on the long term,
  • Municipal representatives must drive the utility operations towards optimal performance, preparing political decisions when need be
  • Inventive operators have to be ready to adapt their delivery modes to meet in one go the political and social demands
  • A willing local citizenry and industry have to take proactive roles in the projects
