Resilience is more than implementing the right technology or practice to assess and address risks of extreme events. It is an approach that should be part of a coherent and holistic strategy to ensure sustainable water resources and safe and secure water supply.

This webinar will demonstrate through practical cases from Europe, Africa and the Middle East, the way in which water utilities are responding to climate change impacts to ensure safe and secure water supply. This can be through a variety of approaches including risk management mechanisms (such as Water Safety Plans – see previous webinar), which can direct utilities to strategies such as source protection, diversification of water supplies and use of early warning systems.
