Effective urban water management strategies are not only important in improving access to clean drinking water. Still, they can play a fundamental role in climate change adaptation, ecological restoration, and improving the overall liveability and resilience of our cities. This can be achieved by integrating green infrastructure into our city design and planning, where parks, gardens, rainwater harvesting ponds, wetlands, trees, and green roofs can replace gutters, drains, and tunnels, which has been shown to deliver infrastructure and ecosystem services with a more significant positive impact and lower cost.
