City Water Resilience Approach: New Publications on Assessing and Mitigating Urban Water Risks

As more people flock to cities around the globe, increasing demands are being placed on urban water systems. Climate change and other unprecedented stressors will exacerbate the challenges related to cities' water security in the decades to come. Developed by Arup and SIWI, the City Water Resilience Approach (CWRA) is designed to help cities grow their capacity to anticipate and mitigate water-related shocks and stressors. To commemorate World Water Day, the CWRA team has released a new set of publications to help share information and build capacity for urban water resilience.

The CWRA team has released 10 new publications and reports, including guidance on the overall framework as well as documents for a number of case study cities.

The CWRA is led by Arup with funding from the Resilience Shift and the Rockefeller Foundation.
