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.
