Climate Resilient Cities: Water Security
A well-function urban water security system is central to a climate resilient city. This paper examines problem identification, systematic planning, policy implementation and coordination mechanisms related to water security and offers policy recommendations for the development of a climate resilient urban water security system. Such recommendations include promoting water conservation practices, building sponge cities, and updating urban planning and building standards.
