From World Water Week: City Water Resilience Framework & Resilient Water Governance

AGWA is part of an ongoing effort to help make cities more prepared for and resilient to shocks and stresses to their water systems. The City Water Resilience Framework is a project developed by Arup with support from The Rockefeller Foundation. Leaders from the project gathered together at World Water Week last month to discuss early observations, reflect on the importance of governance, and lay out the potential role of the Framework in helping cities prioritize actions and investments to become more resilient.

inDepth Water Perspectives

Arup has recently released the inDepth Water Yearbook, a Guide to the Global Water Industry. In coordination with this publication, they are now presenting inDepth Water Perspectives - thought pieces from renowned global water industry experts. Each contributor has been asked to consider ‘The Future of Water’ in the context of critical global water risks focussing on their own region of the world and specific business imperatives.

The collection of ‘perspectives’ from around the world include issues relating to water scarcity, changing sea levels, water usage in the food & drink industry, in transport, technology water solutions, integrated water management, the cost of water – to name but a few. AGWA members have contributed several articles to this initiative and their pieces can be found on this page. Read More...
