World Water Congress - 19.08.2008
Ten days left to register for the "Local governments'day" on water challenges
Local governments are invited to register for the "Local Governments' Day" before Friday 29 August 2008. The one-day event is organised in the framework of the World Water Congress.
The Local Governments' Day to take place.on 9 September in Vienna will explore how local and regional governments can face current challenges and evolutions related to the organisation of water services. It will also aim at assessing the means they have to adapt and to provide good sustainable water management service to the citizens.
What are the challenges that local and regional authorities face at legal, organisational and financial level? Do they have the right instruments to handle these challenges? How can fast growing cities prepare for potential impact on water services? How can local authorities prepare for the challenges of climate change? What measures does the industry take to contribute to a sustainable water management? These are but a few questions that will be addressed at the event.
The Local Government's Day is co-organised by the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR), United Cities and Local Government (CGLU), the International Water Association (IWA) and the International Association of Waterworks in the Danube Catchment Area (IWAD), in the framework of the IWA World Water Congress.
