Nupur Prothi Khanna - Cultural landscapes of Water systems in Asia

In this ‘SDG Decade of Action” we are aiming to facilitate a nature-culture orientation related to water wisdom with a focus on our young citizens. Traditional knowledge related to water has endured over time to bridge the void between the past and the present, offering a means to facilitate unique solutions to urban problems of flooding and drought. Our response to natural water systems within urban extents communicate our diminishing sensibility and traditional ethos of our natural and cultural heritage. How then can we march on in making a difference on ground in traditional cultures enabling youth to use the memory of our rich past in safeguarding their future. 

As cities today seek to reclaim their riverfronts, a rare opportunity is offered to restore past glory and to create more sustainable communities. Waterfront projects offer a tremendous opportunity to direct riverfront revitalization efforts that can weave local streams and younger populations. Showcasing good practice projects is one possibility to (re)connect the historic and sacred aspects of water systems with indigenous, local or migrant communities within the built environment. An adequate response to our water systems with an eye on climate effective action will define the quality of life that we offer to our youth and children.

 In this presentation I will be presenting our perspective on riverfutures through some good practice projects in Asia.
