#WorldWaterCongress Cities Forum

The Forum focuses on the resilience of water supply, drainage and wastewater systems in cities. It is a unique opportunity to learn about the Japanese experience from the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011 in recovering the functions of their water and sewerage works. The sessions also share practical experiences of several cities in the world on building water resilience strategies, understanding resilience as the capacity to recover after a disruptive event (disaster or crisis) or slow changes (diminishing resources, social changes, climate change). Lessons learned on how to assess the risks, how to reduce the risks and prepare for the emergency response will be shared throughout the three complementary sessions.
