Water Resilient Cities Conference
How can cities in the Great Lakes Basin be planned and managed to increased resilience to the disruptions of climate change? A two-day conference for city planners and managers, water resource professionals, water-oriented business and industry leaders, and university researchers will focus on how cities are changing in key sectors of water: water infrastructure systems, water as the basis of economic prosperity (manufacturing, agriculture, tourism, and energy), and changing governance and decision making processes. The conference fosters a conversation across important sectors of our cities related to water to identify key knowledge and best practices to share and use to foster integrated water management, water-related economic strategies and collaborative governance.
