SWITCH: Managing Water for the City of the Future

Managing Water for the City of the Future

Beijing – China

Introduction

In Beijing, the project focused on how urban farmers may cope with the pressures put on them by the city in response to increasing water scarcity as urban water consumption grows. The learning alliance meetings brought together research institutes, government officials and farmer cooperatives. A demonstration project showed how roofwater harvesting can provide a useful source of water for urban farmers and support a shift to higher value crops.
