Urban Nexus // Building a Resilient, Smart and Sustainable City: The Energy-Water Nexus

Energy and water are the world’s two most critical resources, yet their vital interconnections and vulnerabilities are less often recognized. Smart, resilient cities are tackling these connection points head on – metropolitan areas like Pittsburgh, known as the “city of three rivers.” Always a center for groundbreaking ideas – from the earliest days as the center for industry to the recently launched p4 Initiative and upcoming Climate Action Plan 3.0, Pittsburgh leads the country as a thriving hub of innovation, technology, education, environmental stewardship, and sustainability.
