SWITCH: Managing Water for the City of the Future

Managing Water for the City of the Future

Research Areas

SWITCH - Research Themes

The SWITCH Project covered six Research Areas related to Integrated Urban Water Management:

  1. Planning for the Future
  2. Engaging Stakeholders
  3. Water Supply
  4. Stormwater
  5. Wastewater
  6. Decision-Support Tools

As an integrated project, however, there are some overlaps between these areas, for example some aspects of reuse of wastewater are considered under Water Supply and others under Wastewater. Similarly, while strategic planning was a major focus of Planning for the Future, all the research areas included some research related to strategic planning.

Each research area comprised a number of relevant work packages, and the SWITCH Resources are classified by both Research Area and work package number.
