On the Waterfront vol 3
Presents new thinking on cities and water presented at 2011 World Water Week in Stockholm
On the Water Front vol. 3 offers a collection of the most innovative and important insights that were presented at the 2011 World Water Week in Stockholm, which was held under the theme “Responding to Global Changes: Water in an Urbanised World”. Each chapter is authored by a leading expert in the field and builds upon research presented at the 2011 World Water Week in Stockholm. These chapters are complemented by a case study that demonstrates the factors for success to advance green infrastructure in the city of Milwaukee in the United States and poignant reflections from UN-HABITAT on the planning and design of basic infrastructure that provide the foundation for clean, healthy development of urban centers around the world.
This compendium is a must-read for those interested in the latest knowledge, tools and strategies to resolve the planet’s most pressing urban water challenges. Download it here.
