POWER H2020 presentation at IWA conference by Stef Koop, KWR

How do you get citizens engaged in addressing water challenges?

How to get citizens engaged in addressing water challenges and how can this help a city to increase its capacity to improve water services? That is what the European POWER project aims to answer through the applications of Social Digital Platforms. At the IWA conference in Tokyo, Stef Koop presented 2 project assessment methods to help Cities to improve their capacity to address water challenges.


How to address our water challenges? Climate change and urban growth are making this question increasingly important. Despite the numerous solutions available, many cities and organisations have yet to find a good answer to the question. The application of the available technologies and knowledge is inhibited by a variety of barriers. The capacity to collaborate effectively and overcome these barriers is essential. This is why most water challenges are primarily water governance challenges. KWR’s City Blueprint tool and new Governance Capacity Analysis tool identify the barriers and provide cities and organisations with the solution pathways to address existing challenges as effectively and economically as possible.

Barrier islands are great, when they are properly viewed as barriers which protect the coastline from the worst of things like hurricane storm surges. That”s why they”re called “barrier islands. Developing, building, and living on barrier islands, however, is monumentally stupid. Anyone who does so should be told up front that they do so entirely and fully at their own risk, with no help from anyone and no compensation for when their investment is inevitably destroyed by nature. The entirety of the Outer Banks should be parks and nature preserves, not vacation homes and beach side communities. Development should be limited to the coastline protected by the barrier islands, not the barrier islands themselves.
