Resilience Shift Technical Director, Dr Juliet Mian, reflects on our progress this quarter and looks forward to the end of the year with news of Ports, the Brunel lecture and next steps for our work on urban water resilience.
Halfway through 2020, and with the summer well and truly here in this part of the world, it’s time to take stock of Resilience Shift achievements since the start of the year. Xavier Aldea Borruel, Head of Operations, highlights progress in the first half of the year and our exciting plans for the autumn.
Juliet Mian highlights how Covid-19 raises an important question as to what we, as an organisation, should do differently, and how we can use innovative and transformative convening methods to achieve the impact we want in the future?
Juliet Mian reflects on the start of 2020 and shares some new resources – our learning modules on Cape Town: Day Zero can help everyone to learn from crisis, while a case study from India illustrates what good looks like, and how the journey towards more resilient infrastructure can also help to tackle poverty.
At the end of 2019, the Resilience Shift’s Programme Board took stock of progress in the year, and considered the findings of the programme’s mid-term review. See overview programme report and next steps.
We are delighted by the news that the Global Commission for Adaptation has launched its report proposing investment to improve climate resilience between now and 2030 in five critical areas. We report on related progress and look forward to autumn events.
Highlights of Cape Town: Day Zero captured. Testing your resilience to black skies. And looking forward as the water community gathers in Stockholm.
Plenty of cross-output learning has been gained from our wealth of publications, while a wide range of events and fieldwork this past month helped us to share and engage with others working actively in infrastructure resilience.
