Independent voice on urban water welcomed
A new report released today by an independent Urban Water Working Group is a great step toward integrating urban and infrastructure design with improvements in environmental, social and cultural wellbeing, said the Associate Minister for the Environment, Hon Nanaia Mahuta.
The group’s ten urban water principles set a vision for reducing the negative affect that our cities and their design can have on water ecosystems.
“I want to see sustainable cities that have urban spaces designed for people and nature, and the principles laid out in the report by this Group are a great first step,” said Hon Nanaia Mahuta.
