On September 28, Cardiff University, UK Research and Innovation, and the Global Challenges Research Fund will be hosting a multi-speaker webinar.

Access to water underpins the resilience of human society. It is an essential input for food production, for drinking and sanitation, for economic activity and for energy production. It also has aesthetic value and ecological value. Yet pressures on water resources are mounting, from increasing demand through vulnerable supplies and competing narratives of who or what water is for. The recursive nature of water resilience – where resilient water supplies and socio-ecological resilience to water shocks, or water stress, interact and evolve over time – is also increasingly recognised. In the past decade there has been a rapid rise in the literature devoted to the concept of.water resilience, drawing together many disciplinary perspectives. In this workshop we intend to explore the evolving dialogues present in the field of water resilience and how the concept of resilience may be operationalised in practice. Our ‘exploratory’ has a particular
focus on:
 Water resilience as an ‘everyday’ practice
 Urban dimensions to water resilience
 Water resilience and agendas of transformation

Start: 1pm UK time, 8am Ottawa time, 2pm Stockholm/Cape Town, 3pm East Africa
