The Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) was invited to develop a WSC vision and transition strategy for Adelaide, encompassing the Greater Adelaide region. This forms part of the Water Sensitive City Visions and Transition Strategies integrated research project (IRP1), which aims to deliver a suite of participatory methods and associated tools for guiding cities and towns in accelerating their water sensitive transitions.
Adelaide is one of five case studies conducted as part of the Water Sensitive City Visions and Transition Strategies project (along with Perth, Sydney, Townsville and Bendigo). The CRCWSC has also undertaken a similar project for Gold Coast outside the IRP1 project structure. As these cases are delivered, findings from across cities will be analysed to develop strategic insights about the agenda of transitioning to a water sensitive Australian cities more broadly.
The report consolidates results of analysis by the project team and participant discussions, iterated over the course of three workshops and a series of pre-workshop interviews. Workshop images and anonymous participant quotes are included to highlight key activities and perspectives.
