We can help you join the water sensitive cities conversation

As a researcher, you can help us influence how we plan, build and evolve our cities and towns to deal with the increasing stresses on their liveability and resilience—and we have the resources and networks to help you join the conversation.

We can help you build a reputation for water sensitive cities best practice, contribute to live projects, stay on top of the latest thinking and findings, finetune your research to answer the questions facing industry and government, produce and publish reports and journal articles, make industry contacts, and work on industry projects and build a profile as a water sensitive cities specialist or expert contributor.

You may also like to share your work with us. We are always looking to increase the visibility of our research partners in our communications, publications, events and projects. We welcome your involvement.
