SWITCH-in-Asia: Sustainable Water Management in Asian Cities

UNESCO Office Jakarta promotes the SWITCH-in-Asia initiative, an innovative programme that addresses the challenges faced by cities, towns and villages in providing efficient, safe and sustainable water and sanitation services for people, while preserving water and environmental resources.

The SWITCH-in-Asia initiative calls for a paradigm shift in urban water management in order to cease using water resources in a way that is not sustainable in a world facing increasing global change pressures.

SWITCH-in-Asia will be developed through national projects interlinked by a Learning Alliance aiming at facilitating communication and experience sharing among the partners (within a country as well as within the region).
