As an interdisciplinary research centre, the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities has brought together world renowned subject matter experts and industry thought leaders who want to revolutionise urban water management.

Our current term expires on 30 June 2021. We will have much to celebrate by then, but we know that there will be more to do to:

  • ensure Australia remains a global leader in urban water collaboration, research and application
  • build on progress made relating to the institutions, regulations, technical tools and industry networks necessary to scale up and lock in water sensitive practices
  • continue to challenge the status quo and support city transitions with science-based advocacy.

Our first two tranches of research and adoption activities were built on genuine engagement—understanding our partners’ and industry needs and priorities. Engagement is just as important as we look ahead to a potential third wave of research and adoption (T3).
