Case studies

The CRCWSC has developed case studies to help build a body of evidence that can support and encourage the adoption of research outcomes.

These detailed case studies capture and communicate the lessons learned from the early adoption of research knowledge in real-life projects. These have been developed in collaboration with project stakeholders to identify the key drivers and innovations which led to the discovery of water sensitive cities outcomes, and to highlight the challenges faced during the process.
