In the face of increasing urbanisation, and uncertainty around climate and other natural and man-made hazards, those working across urban water systems need to recognise the three inherent parts of their complex systems: the technical, the ecological, and the social. With cities worldwide expected to grow an estimated 2 billion residents by 2050, there is an urgent need for urban water management that ensures consistent, adequate and high-quality water services for all. However, the scale and complexity of this need presents new challenges to decision-makers in government, civil society and the private sector.
