Water Sensitive SA and University of South Australia are hosting the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) to deliver a seminar on the state of knowledge of non-market values of water sensitive systems and practices and the potential of benefit transfer. The CRCWSC’s IRP2 project is developing an economic evaluation framework to identify and quantify economic, environmental and community values of investments in water sensitive practices and systems. The project will deliver an evaluation framework and tool that users will apply to business case development and decision making at multiple levels in public and private sector organisations. The framework will help in better decision making to achieve water sensitive, liveable and resilient cities.

This seminar and workshop will provide an update of the urban water economics tools and guidelines emerging from the CRCWSC to date and an opportunity to provide feedback on how the tools can be customised to best meet the needs of SA WSUD practitioners. It is an opportunity to ensure the benefit-cost tool developed by the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities can be applied to help build the business case for the broad range of WSUD and integrated water management projects by SA practitioners.
