Local Governments'Day: a look into the water challenges at local level
Participate in the "Local Governments' Day" and take a close look at the water challenges local and regional government have to deal with (9 September 2008 - Vienna).

The one-day event will explore how local and regional governments.can face current challenges and evolutions related to the organisation of water services. It will also aim at assessing the means they have to adapt and to provide good sustainable water management service to the citizens.
The event will bring together elected representatives from Europe and other continents, as well as speakers from international and European organisations, experts and representatives of the industry. Three sessions will be dedicated to the following issues:
  1. Are local and regional governments' legal, financial, organisational instruments sufficient to ensure high quality water management to all citizens at an affordable price?
  2. What is the impact of urbanisation, increasing economic growth and fast growing cities on the provision of water services?
  3. Climate change and its challenges: how to adapt and prepare at local and regional level?
The Local Government's Day is co-organised by the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR), United Cities and Local Government (CGLU), the International Water Association (IWA) and the International Association of Waterworks in the Danube Catchment Area (IWAD), in the framework of the IWA World Water Congress.
The registration form should be returned by 29 August 2008 to CEMR.
