Learning from the future: what shifting trends in developed countries may imply for urban water systems in developing countries



Learning from the future: what shifting trends in developed countries may imply for urban water systems in developing countries



Water Science and Technology: Water Supply 5(3/4): 121-127



This study, which is based on reports and articles from various parts of the world, discusses the future development of urban water systems in developing countries. The starting point is the growing need for water and water infrastructure in these countries. Based on an analysis of shifting trends in the water sector in developed countries it is argued that the new infrastructure being constructed runs the risk of soon becoming inefficient and outdated.
