Learning from crisis | Day Zero

These film-based learning modules consolidate reflections from key individuals involved in the response to Cape Town’s water crisis.

There are many lessons to be learned from Cape Town’s 2017-18 water crisis about city governance, the management of water resilience, the importance of multi-stakeholder response, and the impact of an emergency on consumer behaviour.

The Resilience Shift wants to promote systems thinking within cities, water companies and other stakeholders through informed reflection on the Cape Town case study. It has partnered with the Cape Town Drought Response Learning Initiative (CTDRLI) to distil learning from the water crisis into a modular toolkit of lessons using in-depth documentary interviews.

This can be used by decision-makers to reflect on critical infrastructure resilience in their own cities – to better prepare for a crisis, and to craft a better response when a crisis does hit.
