Modernising Hong Kong’s Water Management Policy Part I: Conservation and Consumption: Towards a Water-Smart Hong Kong
In this first report of “Modernising Hong Kong’s Water Policy Management” on conservation and consumption, we propose critical suggestions in pushing for behavioural change of consumers and more rapid responses by the Water Supplies Department to infrastructural failures.
Key Policy Recommendations
- More ambitious water targets for 2030
- Water pricing restructuring
- More robust and transparent data
- Water-saving devices
- Education programmes and school initiatives
Our findings were presented at a launch event on 6 June 2019 by fellow Dr Frederick Lee.
