The introduction provides the readers with a useful overview of the global dialogue on resilience for water-related extremes as it pertains to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, and the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities as key frameworks and global initiatives. The chapter as a teaching tool helps readers grasp the relevant components of these frameworks for the building resilience for these extremes highlighting and summarizing essential sections of the frameworks and how these contribute to the high-level dialogue that can be considered as a backdrop for reading into specific in-practice case examples. The contents also provide the book chapter structures and a short list of key terms.
