Cultural Heritage and Water Management in Urban Planning
Cultural heritage protection is often related to surface- and groundwater management. This poses a threat, certainly in view of climate change and the current need to adaptation in urban water systems. NIVA and partners welcome you to a seminar on the challenges to enhance urban water management practice.
