Strategies for preparing robust business cases
This synthesis report is the outcome of the Industry Partners Workshop held in March 2014 in Coogee, Sydney. All of the presentations and discussions were linked by a common theme: what is the business case for a water sensitive city?
The topic responds to a need to demonstrate the social and economic benefits of a water sensitive city. This report highlights that having a well-documented business case is not enough, and that in today’s decision-making environment it is important to present a compelling proposition and to enlist a stakeholder alliance that supports this as a priority.
This document is a guide for those who need to obtain approval for initiatives and polices that will contribute to a water sensitive city. The document is aimed at assisting users to frame and build support for their preferred option and provides a guide to making a business case succeed.
