Education and public awareness for water management

Preservation of water wealth is influenced by rationalizing water consumption patterns. Expeditious water and waste management plays key role in promoting the resilience of environmental, social, and economic systems in the face of fast and unpredictable changes. Limited efforts have been made to raise public awareness about water issues. Therefore, to bring the methods for dissemination of knowledge and sensitization have become the central themes of water wealth and management across globe. The Education, Public Awareness and Water Management Track has the following subgroups:

Education:

This track highlights the development of sustainable approaches to promote community education strategies related to resource conservation and co-management of water bodies. Incorporating Education Technologies for promoting water-use efficiency to increase public awareness about the importance of water and wastewater treatment will be discoursed.
Inclusion of water sustainability and its benefits in curricula for increasing knowledge and awareness and activities that foster public engagement, behavior and systems change will be given prime focus in deliberations. Initiatives and the enabling and/or empowering conditions that water education can help provide through social marketing and systems thinking strategies will be garnered for plenary sessions.

Urban Water Management, Water Transmission and Distribution:

Urban water management involves the planning, design, and operation of infrastructure needed to meet the demands for drinking water and sanitation, the control of infiltration and stormwater runoff, and for recreational parks and the maintenance of urban ecosystems.
Developing, policies and strategies supported by financing strategies, technological developments, and tools for decision-making, in cooperation with key stakeholders (public and private sector) can facilitate putting Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) into practice at all institutional levels.
Integrated Urban Water Management and Water distribution system - topics highlight environmental, economic, social, technical, and political aspects of water management. It brings together fresh water, wastewater, storm water, and solid waste, and enables current understanding on better management of water quantity and quality. The technical sessions are designed to focus on various science, technology, policy measures and initiatives to encourage the rational use of water resources to reduce loses and waste.

Underground flooding control system:

To regulate and control the flow of water due to rain in urban environment can be facilitated by developing underground storage and de-pollutions basins. Underground construction of de-pollution basins assists in separation of oil, grease, and find coarse particles thereby complementing treatment of water. Thus, the session is planned for sharing knowledge on advances in developments for flood control systems such as underground tunnels to reduce flooding, improve water quality of area waterways.
