Executive Training: ‘Integrated Urban Water Management’

July 24, 2008

Planning to attend the Stockholm World Water Week in August? If so be sure not to miss the ICLEI organised free training session entitled ‘Integrated Urban Water Management – What’s in it for the City of the Future?’ taking place in parallel with the World Water Week. Targeted at senior decision-makers and planners in local governments, this 3 hour event is arranged as part of the European Commission funded project ‘SWITCH – Managing Water for the City of the Future’.

The executive training will be delivered by experts of the SWITCH project partnership with the aim of raising awareness on the opportunities, benefits and costs of an integrated approach to urban water management. In particular, the session will examine whether such an approach could result in more efficient and sustainable uses of water resources in an urban environment.

The training is free of charge and will take place in the Stockholm International Fairs and Congress Centre (venue for the World Water Week) on Tuesday, 19 August 2008 from 15:00 to 18:00.
