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.
