Urban Water Demand Management – POLIS Project on Ecological Governance

The Urban Water Demand Management Project (UWDM) is a 2-year initiative, which began in January of 2003 at the POLIS Project on Ecological Governance. The UWDM Project, based out of the University of Victoria, seeks to understand the structure and dynamics of urban water use, and to provide mechanisms to help reorient Canadian water management from supply to demand-side approaches. In the context of ‘Governance for Innovation’, a term that promotes the adoption of innovative and alternative solutions, the UWDM project intends to develop a comprehensive legal and policy framework; as well as decision making tools that are of national and regional significance.
