Strengthening urban water resilience – the City Water Resilience Approach

We talk to water engineer Louise Ellis about the City Water Resilience Approach recently published by the Resilience Shift – see publications.

The City Water Resilience Approach has been developed in response to cities’ needs for tools and approaches to help them and their stakeholders navigate the process of building resilience. It can be used by public and private organisations, representatives from national and regional government, cities, utilities, catchment and basin authorities, the private sector and civil society groups.

Supported by the Resilience Shift and the Rockefeller Foundation, this new Approach was developed by Arup and the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) with support from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and 100 Resilient Cities along with eight cities worldwide. It includes resources that will help the cities carry out each step of the process.
