Human beings impact the environment in all ways, including the natural water regime versus urban water management. Also, water is inseparable part of the city design, but the uncontrolled presence of water in urban areas may cause great damages. This problem caused to research the management of water resources and the level of implementation of Sustainable Development Goals that are adopted by United Nations General Assembly, as an integral part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Also, this paper illustrates the awareness of the competent authorities and the awareness of ordinary citizens for water in urban areas. A comparative analysis is made through specific problems related to water resources in the territory of Europe and the Republic of North Macedonia, taking as a specific example the city Gostivar. As conclusion, it is noted that sustainable management of water resources integrates several connected fields such as protection from climate changes, quality of life, energy efficiency, etc. It also includes the consciousness of a society, policy makers and individuals in managing with water resources. Due to the importance of water management for a sustainable urban development, it is recommended that spatial planning of the city and the management of water resources must be done parallel.
