Advanced Water Management Centre

AWMC Seminar Program: Evolution of CRCWSC research leading to urban water management revolution

Abstract: Urban growth, a changing climate, and stressed economy mean that a “business-as-usual” approach to managing water, and to planning the form and function of urban communities, can no longer protect the lifestyles we value, the environment that sustains us, and the economy that fuels our prosperity.

‘Water sensitivity’ is a revolutionary approach that harnesses advances in science and technology, and places water at the core of how we plan cities and manage their growth.

The Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) brings together world experts, service providers, and opinion leaders from across government, universities, industry and the community to fundamentally change the way we design, build, and manage our cities. Water sensitive cities and towns aim to be liveable, resilient, sustainable, and economically productive now and for the future
