An international workshop has come to Cape Town to discuss strategies on how to build the city’s long-term water resilience.
The 100 Resilient Cities network has been hosting a Water Colab, or collaboration workshop, which has been taking place in Cape Town this week.
100 Resilient Cities is an initiative which helps cities worldwide to become more resilient to social, economic and climate challenges.
Africa director Liz Agbor-Tabi says the purpose of the Water Colab event is to drive innovation and introduce new pathways to improve Cape Town's resilience to future water challenges.
