    Integrated water management considers the urban water cycle as a single integrated system, in which all urban water flows are recognized as potential resources. Integrated water management is practiced through inclusive and jointly planned management of all water systems– where all waters are resources and are valued and put to use. About 30% of people in India live in cities that are expected to double in population by With a growing economy and changing lifestyles the pressure on already strained water resources is increasing. The government has shown an interest in Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) as a new framework and approach for the nation.

      Saving water saves energy. Consequently, implementing integrated water management (IWM) measures that reduce potable water consumption, stormwater runoff, and wastewater generation can potentially translate into significant energy savings. Urban Water Management Plans are prepared by urban water suppliers every 5 years to support long-term resource planning and water supply sustainability. These plans support the suppliers’ long-term resource planning to ensure that adequate water supplies are available to meet existing and future water .

    Urban water management is now on the verge of a revolution in response to rapidly escalating urban demands for water as well as the need to make urban water systems more resilient to climate change.   Water experts believe policy makers can promote a more sustainable and resilient future in cities by proactively implementing integrated urban water management (IUWM), a holistic approach to planning urban water systems, at the outset of urban infrastructure growth.

This chapter addresses the need for an integrated approach of water management and governance in the urban areas. Water is understood as a natural and social common good, and the relations between different uses and current management practices are analyzed.

This approach needs otherwise to influence not only the technical and social spheres but also the policy one. Savings may be realized through the adoption of new integrated water management concepts such as treated wastewater effluent and/or graywater reuse, rainfall harvesting, etc.

Determining which water management practices are best suited to a particular urban area can be a difficult task as costs, climate, and population characteristics vary. urban water systems by adopting a diversity of existing technologies, management, and institutional practices to supply and secure water for urban areas.
