    1. 1. CITY BLUEPRINT: INDICATOR FOR THESUSTAINABLE URBAN WATER CYCLEKees van Leeuwen and Annemarie van Wezel
    2. 2. Background: UN Urbanization Prospects& Global Environmental Outlook> 300 cities exceeding 1 million inhabitants, 21 mega cities (> 10 millionpeople)50% of humans live in cities, by 2030 this will be 60%1.8 billion people with absolute water scarcity by 2025, two-thirds ofworld citizens could be subject to water stress.3 million people (< 5 y) die from water-borne diseases; greatest singleenvironmental cause of human sickness and death.Agriculture > 70 percent of global water use Watercycle Research Institute 2
    3. 3. Cities play starring roleCities are key to protect and restore ecosystemsoutsize effect on water suppliesreduce water consumptionrecycle wastewaterrestore adjacent watershedsimprove engineering solutions for water supplies Watercycle Research Institute 3
    4. 4. II Approaches•  Water Footprints•  Urban Metabolism•  Ecosystem Services•  Indicators Watercycle Research Institute 4
    5. 5. Water FootprintsTotal water footprint (as % of max./capita)67% consumption of agricultural goods,31% consumption of industrial goods,2% domestic water useWater scarcity (total water footprint to total renewablewater resources)Water import dependency (ratio of external to total waterfootprint) Watercycle Research Institute 5

    7. 7. HUMAN WELL-BEING & INDIRECT DRIVERS OF CHANGEPOVERTY REDUCTION DemographicBasic material for a good life Economic (e.g., globalization, trade,Health market,and policy framework)Good social relations Sociopolitical (e.g., governance, legal and institutional framework)Security Science and technologyFreedom of choice and action Cultural and religious (e.g., beliefs, consumption choices)ECOSYSTEM SERVICES DIRECT DRIVERS OF CHANGEProvisioning (e.g. food, water, fuel) Changes in local land use and coverRegulating (e.g. climate regulation, Species introduction or removalflood and disease control) Technology adaptation and useCultural (e.g. spiritual, recreational, External inputs (e.g. fertilizer use, pestcultural and educational benefits) control, and irrigation)Supporting (e.g. primary production, Harvest and resource consumptionnutrient cycling and soil formation) Climate change Natural, physical, and biological driversLIFE ON EARTH - BIODIVERSITY (e.g. evolution, volcanoes)

    16. 16. POLITICAL CONTEXT•  Water scarcity will be priority next EU Presidency•  European Commissioner Potočnik plans 2012 as year of water, and will present a Blueprint to safeguard Europe’s water resources.•  Classical approach of EU legislation (directives and regulations) may not work as most of the challenges are in cities Watercycle Research Institute 17
    17. 17. NEXT STEPSWe want to publish a next report on City Blueprints forapproximately 10 European cities together with ourpartners (ARC, TRUST and industry) and present it toCommissioner Potočnik in 2012 Watercycle Research Institute 18
