5 Urban groundwater modeling

6 Urban groundwater modeling: UGROW UGROW – An advanced modellng tool for the transient simulation and management of urban groundwater systems UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO

7 International Hydrological Programme of UNESCO Urban Water in IHP-VII ( ) Impacts of global changes on cities urban water systems adaptation to climate change Sustainable urban water management strategies Best Management Practices (BMPs) and best technologies for sustainable urban water management Urban water governance addressing social, economic and institutional dimensions of integrated urban water management Water and sanitation: slum Promoting science, knowledge and capacity building for sustainable urban water management

8 Sustainable Urban Water Management Strategies Exploring and identifying promising directions for sustainable water management strategies, including alternative (low-cost) technologies and innovations Managing the interactions between different components of the urban water cycle Moving from water supply management to demand- side management

9 The Way Forward How do we harness the technology and scientific advances that have been made in the field of water resources management of the past decades? Why have we not yet moved to an integrated approach to urban water management? How can we use new technologies to better understand groundwater process so that we can utilize their potential in the urban context?
