Participants have greater access to resources about water sensitive principles and practice
Working with our government and industry partners, the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities has created over 700 IP assets, providing guidance on how to introduce and embed water sensitive city principles and practice.
Our case studies demonstrate how the various aspects of a water sensitive city have successfully been delivered. Each case study summarises the key drivers and innovations behind the project, and most importantly, what we and our project partners learned along the way.
Our synthesis reports present innovative yet practical ideas for addressing real world challenges. We help stakeholders develop ideas via a co-design process with government and industry partners, to ensure buy in and active engagement.
Our research reports and academic papers present the scientific evidence that supports water sensitive city principles and practices.
Our tools and products incorporate several practical software based tools that support the mainstreaming of water sensitive technologies and practices. Participants receive early access to beta versions of our tools and products, along with training sessions and opportunities to provide feedback.
You can also find information about project timelines, milestones and updates, our water sensitive cities conferences (to which participants receive complimentary and discounted registration) and regional advisory panels, which encourage collaboration to implement water sensitive city projects in each region.
Participants are encouraged to login and utilise their personal dashboard ‘MyCRCWSC’ to favourite of follow projects, topics and track their downloaded resources.
Our CEO, Professor Tony Wong, was a keynote speaker at the Water Institute of Southern Africa (WISA) conference on 24–27 June in Cape Town. Tony presented his keynote address ‘Integrated water management, water sensitive cities and liveability’ on the conference opening day. He looked at urban water challenges in Australia during the period of the Millennium Drought, and the floods that broke that drought, and how many Australian cities have prepared to strengthen the resilience of Australian cities to future climatic challenges. He reflected on some of the lessons from that period and developed some key messages that could guide…
