Training on Sustainable Water Management

SDG Goal 6: Ensure access to water and sanitation for all  
Clean, accessible water for all is an essential part of urban development. However, due to bad economic conditions or poor infrastructure, many cities are facing challenges associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation, and hygiene. 

Therefore, cities and local governments should be able to manage the water quality from the water resources by applying scientific controlling measurements as well as developing resilient and sustainable green infrastructures.

The program will help participants to learn about Seoul’s water resource management system - Arisu, the world’s first water management system accredited by the National Sanitation Foundation(NSF), and other major waterwork management policies and practices of Seoul.
