Choosing locally-appropriate solutions for wastewater management
Webinar
Sustainable Development Goals:
Topics:
Water, waste management and sanitation
Managing wastewater is becoming increasingly challenging with urban populations growing at an unprecedented rate and infrastructure development often not keeping up. This requires government authorities and public utilities to become more creative and innovative in their approach to wastewater management and in developing solutions that are locally fit for purpose, ecologically sound and that meet the needs of the residents as well as those of the relevant technical and political stakeholders. Innovation in this sector requires a mind shift away from viewing wastewater as ‘waste’ and rather seeing and treating it as a valuable resource. To demonstrate this, the webinar presents two municipal examples from Aarhus (Denmark) and Nagpur (India), as well as an inspiring example from Japan.

Esta tercera publicación de la serie sobre financiación del Programa Internacional de Cooperación Urbana (IUC) tiene por objeto proporcionar una visión general sobre mecanismos innovadores de financiación. Aunque las formas tradicionales de financiación municipal no dejan de ser importantes, los nuevos instrumentos financieros y la implicación del sector privado se han convertido en elementos esenciales. A pesar de ello, la experiencia demuestra que, incluso no existiendo un problema de solvencia crediticia, la mayoría de los gobiernos locales y regionales desconocen la existencia o bien no se atreven a emplear herramientas de financiación poco convencionales. El propósito de este manual es recopilar los sistemas de financiación innovadora más habituales, aplicados también en economías emergentes e ilustrados con estudios de caso.
