The objective of this Special Issue is to provide assessments of how specific technologies and interventions can support sustainable urban water management (or related concepts, such as integrated urban water management). Contributions may focus on particular technologies, policies, or anything that would act as a catalyst for a desired change. Social and cultural changes may also be considered. Assessments need to be integrated in nature and focus on important performance issues. Examples of technologies, which is by no means exhaustive, are rainwater harvesting, water sensitive urban design, wastewater recycling or the adoption of alternative business models as a catalyst for change in the urban water sector.
