This is the final report of the World Water Day 2011 under the theme "Water and urbanization, water for cities : responding to the urban challenge". It focused international attention on the impact of rapid urban population growth, industrialization and uncertainties caused by climate change, conflicts and natural disasters on urban water systems. It also encouraged action by governments, organizations, communities, and individuals around the world to engage actively in addressing urban water management challenges. UN-Water designated UN-HABITAT to coordinate the organization of World Water Day 2011. [authors abstract]
