Water inaccessibility is a global challenge. The issue becomes more critical as urban population grows rapidly. The lack of water infrastructure creates enormous difficulties for residents in developing countries and results in poor living standard.
Conventional water infrastructure in developed countries is not applicable to the extreme density and dynamics in contemporary cities in the developing world. An alternative water distribution strategy is relevant to deal with regional climate, culture and economic structure.
As a daily essential for human beings, water is potentially a tool for contemporary urban development to enhance urban life. It can form nodes for social activities in the vibrant urban context.
