    The SWITCH Training KitIntegrated Urban Water Management in the City of the Future

    The SWITCH Training Kit is a series of modules on Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) developed in the frame of the project SWITCH Managing Water for the City of the Future. The Kit is primarily designed for training activities with the following target groups in mind:

    Political decision makers from local governments;

    Senior staff of local government departments that: are directly in charge of water management, are major water users themselves, such as parks and recreation, have major impacts on water resources, such as land-use planning, have an interest in water use in general, such as environmental departments;

    Water managers and practitioners from water, wastewater and drainage utilities.

    All modules are closely linked to one another and these links are clearly indicated throughout. In addition, information contained in the modules is backed up by a library of online resources, case studies and weblinks to external material, all of which are highlighted where applicable in the text. The following symbols are used to indicate when further information is available:

    Preparing for the future

    Introduction

    Being the first of the series, Module 1 of the SWITCH Training Kit familiarises the user with the concept of Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) and provides guidance on the basic steps for realising such an approach in practice. Module 1 promotes an integrated approach to urban water management on the premise that:

    The design and management of the urban water system based on an analysis of the entire system will lead to more sustainable solutions than separate design and management of elements of the system. 1

    Rather than disconnecting the various tasks regarding stormwater, water supply and wastewater, designing and managing all of them in an interlink
