Dealing with Disruption: Operationalizing Resilience in the Water Sector

Part 4: Managing Challenges Through Resilience Thinking

June 3, 2020

As water stress increases on every continent, water professionals need to become proficient in “resilience thinking,” evaluating how interacting systems and assets can best be managed in the face of disturbances and uncertainty. Resiliency thinking also allows water professionals to continually build on their existing knowledge and consider novel solutions to address the ever-changing shocks and stressors to water systems. This webinar will examine how water utilities can take a broad view of water-related vulnerabilities and use collaboration, creativity, and resilience thinking to overcome these challenges.
