Water is the lifeblood of a city. Too much is just as dangerous as not enough, and from Cape Town to Byblos, Jakarta to Chennai, climate change demands that any city that wants to survive has to learn to manage and live with water. To be resilient and thriving requires a comprehensive, forward-looking approach to water management that builds on the city’s people, making them a part of the plan and the solution. Water is a significant focus for Resilient Cities Network and our member cities’ efforts to adapt to and mitigate the causes and effects of climate change.
