Melbourne Water recently launched City Planning Prioritisation : A review of practices and enablers for multi-stakeholder planning for resilient and liveable cities. The report examines decision making processes and planning enablers in 6 cities seen to be exemplars for liveability and resilience.

This event will explore highlights from the City Planning Prioritisation report and feature additional speakers from Melbourne Water, Sydney Water and City of Melbourne to share the frameworks and tools they are applying for resilience and IWM.

  • Priyani Madan & Joan Ko / ARUP: Lessons from international exemplars in innovative city planning
  • Kate Berg & Candace Jordan/ City of Melbourne: Heat Vulnerability Analysis & mapping flow-on effects on city users
  • Phillip Birtles / Sydney Water: Innovation in integrated water cycle planning for the Western Sydney Aerotropolis

The short presentations will be followed by a facilitated Q & A with the panel.

Insight you will gain from this workshop:

  • How you can get started and apply frameworks in your projects for local government and regional planning
  • How to get engagement and support when applying innovative new planning frameworks
  • How these tools will help your organisation become more proactive instead of reactive to stresses and shocks

Target Audience:

Local Government, Water Utilities, Urban Planning practitioners, members of the DELWP metro and regional IWM forums
