Water sustains life on Earth, but it’s also one of the biggest resilience challenges of the 21st century. From rising sea levels to limited drinking water supplies, see how three of our Resilient Cities are tackling their biggest water challenges:
On one end of the spectrum, El Paso, a Texas border city in the desert, faces low annual rainfall and a limited water supply.
Da Nang, which sits on low-lying Vietnamese coastline, gets hit by at least one increasingly severe typhoon each year.
And in a worst-case scenario, Vejle, Denmark, could be underwater by the year 2100 because of climate change.
