Definition:

Average day per capita water use

Methods and Limitations:

The average day per capita water use indicator describes the average annual daily volume of potable water supplied by Metro Vancouver, divided by the serviced population, in a calendar year. Average daily water demand is less sensitive to prevailing weather conditions in any given year and, over longer periods of time, is influenced by trends in conservation and water use efficiency. ​​

11. Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable

Cities are hubs for ideas, commerce, culture, science, productivity, social development and much more. At their best, cities have enabled people to advance socially and economically.

However, many challenges exist to maintaining cities in a way that continues to create jobs and prosperity while not straining land and resources. Common urban challenges include congestion, lack of funds to provide basic services, a shortage of adequate housing and declining infrastructure.

The challenges cities face can be overcome in ways that allow them to continue to thrive and grow, while improving resource use and reducing pollution and poverty. The future we want includes cities of opportunities for all, with access to basic services, energy, housing, transportation and more.
