Resilience Shift Primer: Potable water. An industry guide to enhancing resilience


This primer is a brief document introducing the elementary principles of resilience governing the Potable Water industry and is part of a body of knowledge, tools and approaches that the Resilience Shift is producing, funding, and curating, intended to help those responsible for the financing, planning, design, delivery, operation and maintenance of critical infrastructure systems to shift practice.

Their vision is to contribute to a common understanding across critical infrastructure sectors of what contributes to resilience and how it can be achieved in practice. Building resilience into your infrastructure systems, across your value chains, will allow you to prevent or mitigate against shocks and stresses that you identify, and to respond better to those events that you can’t predict or avoid.
