How to keep rainwater in cities and why it matters

About the speaker

The city and the people in it need water for their life, but its availability has become taken for granted over the years.

Recently, the climate change reminds us of how precious the water is, and makes us think whether today’s urban water management is right or not. You will see that the cities of the future will be substantially different from today’s … from the perspective of man but also the landscape in which it lies.

David Stránský is an Associate Professor in Water Management and Water Structures at Czech technical university in Prague as well as forensic expert in water management. Currently, he deals with the issue of rainfall-runoff relationships in urbanized river basins, specifically the mathematical description of these phenomena, the hydraulic reliability of systems and the integrated assessment of the effect of urban drainage.
