In the Water Solutions webinars, we take a deep dive into the four subthemes for the Amsterdam International Water Week in November. Together with scientist, innovators, and experts from cities, utilities, industry and agriculture we bring new perspectives and insights to the table. This third webinar focus on Risk and Resilience. We deepen our understanding further around disasters like floods and droughts which are prominent challenges around the world. We bring together wide range of experts from cities, industries and utilities, scientists, practititioners and innovators addressing these challenges and providing solutions.
The essential focus of this subtheme is on adaptive and resilience designs of water infrastructure to address challenges of water quality, floods and droughts. The subtheme also highlights the importance of availability and access to data-driven early warning and implementing systems. Therefore in order to strengthen the preparedness around disasters, reduce risks and build resilience in systems and affected communities; financial investors need to lead.
