• What do we need to do to clean up our rivers, streams and water bodies? Do we need new ideas for protecting/rejuvenating our urban water bodies? How do we integrate these into our citywide water management strategies?
• In the context of wastewater management for smart cities, how important is it to visualise the closure of the 'nutrient loop'?What strategies and approaches will be needed?
