Water, as an indispensable source of life, is considered as a scarce resource due to excessive consumption, pollution, climate change, and poor management practices. As water scarcity is being felt more and more every day around the world, innovative and creative solutions have gained an emergency for cities. Instead of conventional solutions, city managements are searching for sensitive solutions to nature and local. Turkey is already facing the problems of water scarcity due to its semi-arid climate susceptive to climate change; however, the conventional approach dominates water management. Bodrum is chosen as the case study area because it has its own water collection methods used for centuries by local population and have been emerged as a cultural heritage. The aim of the thesis is to propose environmentally sensitive and effective solutions to the water scarcity of the peninsula by combining the local water heritage methods and contemporary nature-based water supply techniques. In the study, water management methods of different historical cities are examined. Later, the current water problems and different management techniques from around the world are discussed. Additionally, approaches of countries are discussed to understand concepts and implementations. In the case study, the water problems and management history of the Bodrum Peninsula are investigated. The current situation analyses and a survey are conducted. With the obtained data, a guide which presents integrated strategies to combine the local water heritage methods and innovative nature-based techniques have been developed for the Bodrum Peninsula.
