Great Water Cities Session

Great Water Cities: Paths to Livability, Prosperity and Resilience 

Monday, Sept. 29, 2014
10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Great Hall A/B
New Orleans Morial Convention Center   

 

This special water leader’s session will focus on water, wastewater and stormwater systems in the face of climate change, extreme events, utility emergencies, and natural disasters. Leaders from diverse cities recognize that conventional practices are not sufficient solutions and are using smarter approaches  to manage water demands, increase resiliency, enhance livability, and conserve resources. This panel of global thought-leaders is the latest in a series of dialogues examining case studies and engaging in discussion to distill lessons learned from leading cities and informing other great water cities of all sizes facing similar challenges.
