100 Resilient Cities

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.

AGWA is part of an Arup-led project to develop and implement with five core cities a water resilience framework. The City Water Resilience Framework (CWRF) aims to help cities better prepare for and respond to shocks and stresses to their water systems.

Currently AGWA is taking part in a three-day Global Knowledge Exchange in London, bringing together City and other stakeholders to share best practice and co-design final project outputs for the City Water Resilience Framework, 100 Resilient Cities, and the Resilience Shift's Governance for Resilient Water Systems (Lloyd's Register Foundation) projects.
