SWITCH: Managing Water for the City of the Future

Managing Water for the City of the Future

Zaragoza – Spain

Introduction

In Zaragoza, the project focused on demonstrating sectionalisation as a means to manage water demands in a city that takes pride in minimizing its water consumption. Sectionalisation has now been scaled up or is under study across almost half the urban area, and included in draft municipal by-laws. The project used existing stakeholder platforms to communicate these activities especially the Municipal Water Commission, and the Expo Zaragoza in 2008 which focused on sustainable water management was an important venue for the showcasing the activities.
