The city of Zaragoza takes great pride in the way it has managed its water. It has achieved impressive results in reducing water losses, increased investments in wastewater treatment, and above all, obtained high degrees of participation in aspects of water management from citizens, organised civil society and local government departments. All of this culminated in the 2008 Expo held in Zaragoza with the theme “water and sustainable development”. This paper provides a background to how these results have come about, and what role the SWITCH action-research project has played. [authors abstract]
