South East Queensland participants, along with government and private industry representatives are invited to attend a free seminar and panel decision on new water sensitive city planning tools this Friday, 19 June 2015.
The CRC for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) has been working with its government and private industry partners to develop novel scenario assessment and decision support tools that help to address the complexity of managing water, in a world faced with increasing population growth and changing land uses patterns; increasing climate variability; and a tightening economic environment.
This seminar and panel discussion has been designed to share and discuss three of these tools with practitioners involved in land use and growth planning, infrastructure planning and design, integrated water management planning.
Speakers at the seminar include Dr Christian Urich, researcher in the CRCWSC project Socio-technical modelling tools to examine urban water management scenarios (A4.3); Dr Steven Kenway, researcher in Managing interactions between centralised and decentralised water systems (C3.1), and Ross Allen, Project Leader for Integration and Demonstration through Urban Design (D1.1).
