An informal discussion with Peter Willis and Martin Shouler will explore their insights into the links between urban water resilience and City resilience, through the lens of their work with the City of Cape Town.
In this session at World Water Week, we explore three city case studies using governance, spatial analysis and machine learning approaches to deliver resilient, blue-green growth in Addis Ababa, Hull and Shanghai.
