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.

  • 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!
