About Water Leaders Summit

The Values of Water Culture: with the changes in ways of thinking and management interventions, a better life liked to water will be created through the influence of culture.

Facing the challenges of climate change, it is necessary to introduce international experiences to increase the resilience of water resources management and flood-prevention, especially when conventional flood-proofing approaches are no longer compatible. These experiences are induced from the alterations in ways of thinking, leading to the changes in management interventions. However, from relying rivers to absorb flood runoff to restoring permeable lands, from counting on governments for management to public-private partnerships, and from unvaried policy to refined strategies in water resources management, these transformational changes require opportunities. “Culture” is the opportunity, for its close connections with human and water, as well as its capability to guide society.

As a result, the International Forum 2020 with the title of “Water Culture in New Era” will discuss the pathways to reshape our water plans with the strength of culture. Assuredly, more phenomenal cooperation opportunities between governments, enterprises, and research institutes will be established through the sharing and discussions in disciplines of “Culture”, “Environment”, “Industry” and “Cities”.

國際論壇介紹

水文化價值:人的思維轉變,引導治理方式的改變,藉由文化力量實踐這些改變,以創造更美好水生活。

面對氣候變遷的挑戰,當傳統工程的防洪治水手段已不足應付,我們必須參酌國際經驗,以提升水資源與防洪的韌性。這些經驗都是思維轉變,進而引導治理方式的改變,如僅由河道承載洪水轉以水土結合共同承載、僅靠政府承擔責任轉以公私協力,以及水資源轉以分散式小系統的精緻管理等,這些思維亟需契機以發揮最大功效。文化就是這個契機,文化不僅與生活與水息息相關,更具有型塑個人,引導社會的力量。

爰此,「新時代水文化價值」國際論壇主要探討如何藉由文化力量實踐這些改變,另透過「文化」、「環境」、「產業」及「城市」等不同面向的議題交流搭起台灣與世界的橋樑,串起產、官、學、研等各界跨域合作的火花,讓大家攜手共創共存共榮的美好水生活。
