Greater Miami & the Beaches (GM&B) was selected as one of five partner cities across the globe to participate in the development of a City Water Resilience Framework (CWRF). The project will examine the characteristics and challenges posed by shocks and stresses facing all segments — drinking water supply and service, wastewater, surface water, stormwater and groundwater — with the goal of establishing a framework by which all stakeholders can understand the complex systems and interdependencies to enhance robust planning and decision-making.

The team led by the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department and the Greater Miami and the Beaches partners of Miami-Dade County, the City of Miami, and the City of Miami Beach just wrapped up the 2-week discovery period. Input was gathered from more than 250 stakeholder partners who were engaged through a series of 1-on-1 interviews, focus group discussions, site visits, and workshops.

Perspectives were gained from a variety of sectors including water management professionals, energy sector, community representatives, business and insurance, emergency management, environment and natural systems, and more. The fieldwork will help to establish a shared understanding of the physical and governance structures of our water systems - an important step in developing the assessment tool and action plan for water resilience.
