Abstract

Water is a fundamental and renewable resource that cannot get lost due to the natural water cycle. Despite this, it is a scarce resource in some regions and in many cases water is polluted more and faster than it can purify itself. The following paper plays with a scenario about water in urban areas to achieve a win-win situation for the environment as well as for anthropogenic demands. This idea is assessed by means of the Integrative Sustainability Concept of the German Helmholtz Association (ISCGH). The case of Santiago de Chile serves as an imagination of the nexus between today's social wants and ecological needs of tomorrow under the framework conditions of a threshold country.
