The “Water in Istanbul” project focuses on Istanbul, which has needed water management throughout its history. It aims to investigate water management policies in Istanbul in the 15th century and in the 80s, when it received heavy immigration, and to discuss and solve the water problems that the city may experience today and in the future, to benefit from the knowledge of past practices.
