6th EWA/JSWA/WEF Joint Conference "Resilience of the Water Sector"

Munich, Germany // 15 May 2018 - 18 May 2018

Conference / Workshop

Resilience is a strong emerging theme within many parts of the water sector.  From long term water resource availability and water quality impacts of droughts, to the need for resilience against short lead time disruptive events such as floods and earthquakes. These types of events not only disrupt water sector infrastructure and operations, they also impact on other infrastructure that a reliable water sector depends on. This includes electrical power supplies, telecommunications, and transportation as well as disruption to the supply chain.  The impact of such events can be long lasting and far reaching, impacting negatively on customers, the environment, and business performance.  Ultimately, the need for resilience is a significant business risk management issue.

This joint conference seeks to explore ways in which the sector in its broadest terms is developing resilient systems, assets, and operations so that business continuity risk is well managed in the face of adverse conditions. The intention is to share experience from across the world covering: real life examples of lessons learned from significant events; good practice in the response to events; and current activities that are strengthening resilience.
