New York, like many cities around the world, is a city on the water. How we manage and interact with our water as a public resource for services, conservation, and recreation is critical to the city’s resilience, sustainability, and livability. This session exemplifies the rehabilitation of polluted blue spaces in New York and Mumbai for the good of the cities and their people.
