Program endorsements

Port and city professionals, water managers, and heritage professionals need to develop new ways of dealing with the conflicting needs and interests of all stakeholders involved in water systems. This involves integrating technological, spatial, social and cultural approaches which with a better understanding of the historical and heritage value of these areas form the key to sustainable development. This program will help participants make better planning decisions about the development of socially, economically and environmentally sustainable cities and communities.
