Water Resilience

Driving resilience innovation in the uk water sector

The UK Water Partnership was specifically created to provide leadership and a unified approach to our efforts here in the UK.

Both to contribute to the development of sustainable solutions and to ensure that the UK’s experts, innovators and entrepreneurs are at the forefront of the global response. The Water Resilience initiative is one of the latest workstreams the UK Water Partnership has focused its efforts toward.

With cities worldwide expected to grow an estimated 2 billion residents by 2050, there is an urgent need for urban water management that ensures consistent, adequate and high-quality water services for all. However, the scale and complexity of this need presents new challenges to decision-makers in government, civil society and the private sector. The UK is in a strong position to help develop a water resilience future globally utilising its expertise, knowledge and global links. Against that background, the UK Water Partnership has developed a Water Resilience White Paper which examines the contribution that water resilience will play in shaping our industry and the water economy and, in particular, highlights some of the emerging commercial opportunities for the UK. The paper is a live document which will be updated with new exemplar case studies of UK expertise in Water Resilience at scheduled intervals – the paper is available on the UK Water Partnership website, available via the link below:
