From 2011-08-21 to 2011-08-27
Venue: Stockholm, Sweden
The world is undergoing rapid urbanisation: people, ideas and commodities are intensively mobilising from peripheries to economic centres, where architectural wonders towers sky lines while slums continue to grow in their shadows. By 2050, more people will live in cities than the number of people living in the entire world today.
Under the theme “Responding to Global Changes: Water in an Urbanising World,” the 2011 World Water Week will take place in Stockholm, from 21 to 27 August. The programme for this year will be dynamic and diverse, including vital topics such as urban governance, planning, adaptation and risk reduction, resilient supply chains, equitable service delivery and technologies for resource prudent modern lifestyles in increasingly livable cities.
