Draft Guidelines for Sustainable Rehabilitation of Small Urban Water Bodies

United Nations

Publication Date:

These guidelines are meant to provide for interested individuals, local initiatives, planers, decision makers on a district and town level as well as NGO’s the proper background to start a small scale urban water body rehabilitation project to create an ECO-DISTRICT within a City. This publication provides principles to guide initiatives from the stage of a sparking idea to the process to decide which water body has currently a chance for rehabilitation and where more effort is needed to improve the basis and background for a rehabilitation project. The quality of the water body is essential; therefore decentralized treatment of wastewater which enters the river or lake becomes one of the major starting point to create a ecologically sustainable environment.
