SWITCH is an EU-funded research programme aimed at achieving more sustainable integrated urban water management in the 'City of the Future', 30-50 years from now. Beginning in February 2006, it consists of a Consortium of 33 partner organizations working in 15 European and developing cities worldwide, with UNESCO-IHE as lead partner. The consortium partners are working together to share knowledge and research on a range of tested scientific, technological and socio-economic solutions to urban water management. It is envisaged that such proven sustainable solutions will be adopted globally to replace the many different ad hoc approaches which currently exist and to create a paradigm shift to sustainable urban water management.

Main goals cover:

  • Synthesis of achievements of the SWITCH Project in terms of scientific breakthroughs and implementation;
