Water, Mega Cities and Global Change
|Name of story||Megacities Alliance for Water and Climate|
|Linked ICI page||Megacities Alliance for Water and Climate|
|Full story text|| Not specially related to our initiative but examples exist on how best practices can be replicated from city to city (not necessarily megacities by the way):
- Tokyo system of water aspersion on roads to combat heat-island effects has inspired Paris who has experimented an adapted version for future dissemination on a larger scale. - Sydney green infrastructure (Central Park buildings) is an inspiration for others with water recycling and reuse. - Paris and Amsterdam share ideas and experimentations on energy recovery from sewers and aqueducts. Those examples come from cities that can work without our megacities alliance; more success stories can be however developed within the network. But what we really want to achieve through the alliance is to help cities in developing countries to share their difficulties and then find solutions through the network of the megacities.
