Resilience & Smart Communities 

To stay proactive, utilities must consider how climate change and natural disasters will affect both their physical and financial resilience. This webinar, led by expert speakers, explored how utilities can increase resilience of their physical facilities and operations by using intelligent infrastructure diagnostics in decision-making. We also examined how decisions related to financial resilience may be impacted by climate change and its resulting changes to the insurance industry, including impacts on coverage and potential impacts on the insurance industry's support of public bonds.

Understanding Resilience, from Concept to Implementation Strategy

This webinar examined how cities and regions, and their water systems, are developing plans to become resilient. We also reviewed 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 include Milwaukee, Miami, and Cape Town.
