Integrated Urban Water Management in the City of the Future
One system – one approach!
From population growth to rapid urbanisation, changing consumption patterns to deteriorating inrastructure, increasing energyprices to climate change: water systems in cities throughout the world are conronted by an intimidating uture. Integrated UrbanWater Management (IUWM) can make a dierence – and the SWITCH Training Kit has been developed to show how.Designed or training workshops, but also or individual reading, the SWITCH Training Kit contains six modules covering all o the central eatures o urban water management (see diagram on the opposite page).Users will also nd insights into:
the interactions between the dierent elements o the urban water cycle;
the widereaching benets o an integrated approach to managing water;
the recommended phases o a strategic planning process; and
ways and means to work with local stakeholders eectively.
Target group:
Water managers, urban planners and engineers rom local governments and water, wastewater and drainage utilities.
Freely available. The SWITCH training modules can be ound on the attached CDROM. They can also be downloadedrom the SWITCH Training Desk (
) along with supporting resources, urther training materialand a set o practical case studies.

In most cities, the dierent sectors o the urban water cycle – water supply, stormwater,wastewater – are managed by dierent departments and institutions with minimalcoordination in their design and operation. Decisions are taken rom a narrow perspectivewith little consideration or the longterm impacts across the city as a whole.As pressures such as climate change, population growth and ageing inrastructureincrease, this ragmented approach and its dependence on conventional technologies isno longer sucient to deliver the water services that cities rely on.Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) is an alternative approach. IUWMrecognises that problems encountered in one area o the urban water cycle may be theresult o (mis)management in another. By looking at water in the city as one system,holistic evaluation becomes possible leading to a more ecient and sustainable use o resources.
Mu 1
introduces the concept o IUWM and describes how shiting rom a conventionalapproach to urban water management towards an approach based on integration is moresuitable to meet current requirements and cope with uture uncertainty.It also demonstrates how greater integration can be realised in practice through theadoption o a strategic planning process. Rather than investing in shortterm solutionsthat ocus solely on today’s problems, the development and implementation o a strategicplan provides the ramework or making sustainable urban water management a reality.More specically, the module will assist users in gaining a solid understanding o:
what constitutes an integrated approach to managing the urban water cycle and howit diers rom a conventional approach;
how IUWM can help move towards increased sustainability in the urban water cycle andurban development in general; and
how to adopt IUWM through a longterm strategic planning process.
The SWITCH hypothesis:
‘The design and management of the urban water system based on an analysis of the entire system will lead to more sustainable solutions than separate design andmanagement of elements of the system.’
