Smart Urban Water

A step change in urban water management

The Smart Urban Water (SUW) project facilitates  local authorities to improve and provide better access to urban water management data networks. Therefore,  reducing water stresses associated with climate change, while generating business opportunities for SMEs.

As a result of climate change, more frequent and intense summer droughts and rainstorms can be observed. Alongside other extreme weather events, this has a major impact on water levels as well as the availability of water in densely populated cities and urban areas. Local governments are under growing pressure to improve urban water management and come to terms with the changing climate. In order to manage the effects of floods and droughts in a more effective way, local authorities  need information relating to the current and future state of water that is both accurate and readily available.
