26 June, 2019–28 June, 2019
The Resilience Shift’s George Beane will present the City Water Resilience Approach and the OurWater tool at this, the 10th Global Forum on Urban Resilience and Adaptation.

A ‘Resilient City’ is prepared to absorb and recover from any shock or stress while maintaining its essential functions, structures, and identity as well as adapting and thriving in the face of continual change. Building resilience requires identifying and assessing hazard risks, reducing vulnerability and exposure, and lastly, increasing resistance, adaptive capacity, and emergency preparedness.
For a decade, ICLEI Resilient Cities has been providing a global and open space where local governments, researches, businesses and civil society could meet as equals, contributing with their know-how to the advancement of urban resilience.
To celebrate their 10 years of experience and expertise-building in supporting cities thrive in face of challenges, this anniversary edition will present a 360° view on urban resilience: Pathways towards implementing resilience; Innovation in the realm of urban resilience; and Building cohesive, healthy and resilient communities.
