Resilient cities focus of new Sandia, Rockefeller Foundation pact to help 100 communities

osure to billions of dollars in economic impact and repairs after a disaster, he said.

Ellis is excited about working with city governments and believes resiliency can become an attribute of cities, just like quality schools and clean water.

"Resiliency should contribute to the economic vitality of a city," he said.

Clean water a human right, integral to resilient cities

Tidwell believes access to clean water is a human right and works toward that end in his profession and as a volunteer traveling to South America and Africa to provide technical know-how.

"It's always been in my heart. I'm trying to give back a little bit of what we take for granted in the U.S. by recognizing that a lot of people don't have access to good, clean water," Tidwell said.

In the U.S., helping cities with water issues has expanded in recent years from a focus on natural disasters or malevolent activity that affect water supplies to include more chronic issues of population growth and climate change and their impact on water resources.

Like many of Sandia's researchers, Tidwell can work with cities to study their entire systems by taking into account water issues along with other concerns. "We're really bringing together the energy, the water, the land, the food, environmental issues, looking across the board in trying to fashion a more holistic view of how these work together," he said.

For example, Sandia can help explore the interplay between water and energy, water and food supply or other trade-offs; the laboratory can help developing cities provide safe drinking water, sanitation or build needed infrastructure in a cost-effective and efficient manner through the use of technology; or perhaps identify specific technologies to produce clean drinking water.

Tidwell recognizes that many cities already have high-caliber water experts. He envisions a collaborative approach with cities to under
