Resilient Urban Water Management

Stress-testing urban water systems

Participants of the IWA World Water Congress in Tokyo about the importance of working on resiliency.

The Watershare Resilience Assessment approach supports water utilities in developing more resilient water cycle design strategies and governance approaches. This method will enhance strategic planning within the context of the circular economy and a highly uncertain future.

The Watershare Resilience Assessment approach:

  1. Define your current water system performance: Assess the sustainability performance and governance capacity.
  2. Explore diverse future scenario’s and identify promising circular solutions:
    Build scenario’s and model various technology interventions to the water system.
  3. Stress-test how the system behaves under pressure and obtain a resilience profile: Stress-test the performance of different water system configurations under increasingly stressful scenario’s.
