The project addresses the issue of how to improve the quality of urban life by reaching economically, socially and environmentally sustainable decisions on water systems in cities. The team of partners is drawn from different parts of Europe - Spain, Italy, UK, Germany, Finland, Hungary - and with a range of expertise, including economics, political science, environmental science and law, water institutions. The project will study current decision-making on water systems in 29 European cities, and long-term historical experience. Two final reports will be produced: one on best practices, and the other developing a model for participative decision-making. The work will be disseminated to stakeholders and public authorities, who will also be involved during the course of the research.
