Resilience Webinar Series

Dealing with Disruption: Operationalizing Resilience in the Water Sector

This series of four webinars, jointly hosted by NACWA and AMWA, will explore the role of water utilities in overall community resilience.  Case studies, lessons learned, and resources for utilities will be shared so utilities can learn from one another and improve their resilience to multiple challenges, including natural disasters, cyber threats, climate conditions, and aging infrastructure. 

Resilience Webinar Series Part 2  |  December 5, 2019  |  2:00 PM - 3:30 PM ET

Resilience & Smart Communities

Maintaining, enhancing, and accelerating progress toward resilient water and wastewater systems is a fundamental aspect of a resilient community.  This webinar will explore standards and tools that can help support water resilience, including ISO standards and the City Resilience Index, as well as the collection of data and use of new technology to evaluate and improve resilience.  Financial considerations for making decisions related to resilience will also be discussed.

 Why Attend?

  • Learn about the role that water agencies play in improving community resiliency.

  • Explore how water agencies have adapted to the challenges and uncertainties faced due to the impacts of climate change and how they can mitigate the impacts of their own operations.

  • Gain key insights in the latest on climate and resiliency and stay ahead of the curve!

Resilience Webinar Series Part 1  |  September 17, 2019  |  2:00 PM - 3:30 PM ET

Understanding Resilience, from Concept to Implementation Strategy

This webinar will examine how cities and regions, and their water systems, are developing plans to become resilient. We will also review the 100 RC City Water Resilience Framework, developed through the Rockefeller Foundation 100 Resilient Cities initiative, which provides detailed guidance on steps to take to improve resiliency. Case studies of regions that have used this framework and other planning strategies will include Milwaukee, Miami, and Cape Town.
