Building resilience through water: How smart cities navigate a changing climate and uncertain future

Keynotes
For the first time in the history of the World Economic Forum Global Risks Report, the top five risks in terms of likelihood all relate to water. Building the knowledge, skills and tools suited to meeting these complex challenges is essential to enabling cities to anticipate, plan for and thrive under water-related shocks and stresses. Besides, the world becomes increasingly interconnected and technology dependent. Being smart is the future of urbanism.Smart cities bring together efficient and reliable infrastructure, services and technology to enhance the quality of urban life, create economic opportunities for residents and enhance their interactions with the urban environment. Whether through regenerative water services, leveraging technological innovations, the reuse of treated wastewater, advancing water sensitive design strategies and planning for uncertainty by creating green infrastructure, water smart cities must become the new standard to ensure long term urban water resilience.
