In times of drought and uncertain climate conditions, safeguarding urban water supply is of critical importance. A combination of innovation, supply diversification, flexibility and demand management are key to securing future water supplies. Measures to increase the resilience of water supply to shortages due to inadequate rainfall, drought and population increases may include demand management initiatives to make the most efficient use of existing supply, diversifying water sources and creating climate independent water supply sources, such as desalination plants. Water recycling and reusing different types of wastewater after treatment, such as stormwater or sewage, can also play an important role in developing urban water resilience and increasing water security. Treated wastewater can be reused for various non-potable applications such as irrigation, but also has potential uses in areas such as groundwater replenishment or even potable uses. Water sensitive urban design can also provide opportunities to better integrate non-traditional water sources into urban planning.
