CityNet Connects and Exchanges Best Waterworks Practises : 2016 Arisu Waterworks Workshop for Chinese Cities

City officials from seven Chinese cities participated in the Arisu Waterworks Workshop from September 25 to October 1, jointly organized by the Office of Waterworks Seoul Metropolitan Government (Arisu) and CityNet. Tailored specifically for Chinese cities, the workshop transmitted the know-how and lessons learned from the waterworks policy implemented by Arisu, which is often regarded to have one of the best waterworks practices in the Asia Pacific.

Taking the participants’ interests and their cities’ priorities into consideration, the workshop was organized into seminars on waterworks policies and a site visit to maximize the effectiveness of the workshop, such as the Arisu Water Treatment Centre, Sewage Treatment Centre and the Seoul Water Research Institutes.

Participants were especially interested in the management of the waterworks network, particularly regarding the issues of leakage prevention due to aging pipe networks. Participants also showed their great interest in the Arisu’s policy and the management of wastewater treatment.

The workshop sessions were focused on transmitting know-hows and lessons learned in relation to the aforementioned areas of interest.

Around the world, cities are facing #environmentalhazards like extreme #heat, #landslides, #pollution, and #flooding. To enhance #resilience to #climatechange impacts, cities must monitor and address these hazards. Earth observations can help cities understand and enhance urban resilience and make better decisions for planning, urban #greening, monitoring, and more.

This 3-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of the Earth Observations Toolkit for Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements, an online knowledge resource that shares ready-to-use Earth observation data sets and tools. These resources can be applied in policy areas that are important to resilient and sustainable cities. Such areas include sustainable urban planning, adequate #housing, access to #publictransport, and access to public spaces.
