The City of Cape Town 

Draft Resilience Strategy

The Cape Town Resilience Strategy is being adopted in the aftermath of the worst drought the city-region has confronted in recorded history. Three years of dramatically low rainfall, exacerbated by climate change, presented the possibility of Cape Town running out of water. This episode severely tested the resilience of our city and its residents. Through a comprehensive societal response, mainly due to heroic efforts of households and businesses to reduce consumption, the worst-case scenario was avoided. it is in this context that Resilient Cape Town offers a roadmap for a 21st Century metropolis.

The strategy reflects the input of thousands of Capetonians who were consulted over the past two years.
