Side Event SE-00191

OECD Side event on water security and cities

· Coordinator :
OECD

Cities in both developed and developing countries face new or emerging challenges regarding water management (aging infrastructure, increasing risks from climate change, new consumption patterns, new institutional frameworks). Responses to these challenges combine finance, innovation, co-operation between cities and their rural environment and governance arrangements. Drawing on new work and extensive consultation on these and related issues, the OECD, with a panel of partners, will tease out policy messages that emerge from successful urban water management initiatives taken by cities and governments.
The interplay between national and local initiatives on water management will shape the cities we will live in, including their capacity to thrive and contribute to better lives and the cost of urban water management. The discussion will be relevant for local and central governments, city administrators, land use planners and property developers, investors, utilities, agriculture organisations, and civil society.
The side event will be chaired by the OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria, who will share the main messages that derive from OECD work. The panellists are Ambassador Lee, Permanent Delegation of the Republic of Korea to the OECD, and Mr. Pex Langenberg, Vice-Mayor of Rotterdam.
