Victorian edition of the CRCWSC National Research Adoption Tour

Tuesday 13th Nov 2018 9:00AM - 1:00PM

Monash University Law Chambers
555 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne, Victoria, 3000

In this information session, local practitioners with the CRCWSC, will demonstrate how tools developed by the CRCWSC have been applied to projects to support transitions to water sensitive cities. 

These tools help provide the evidence base practitioners require to support the mainstreaming of water sensitive technologies and practices. The tools and other CRCWSC research outputs provide answers to common questions, such as:

  • How do I support my Council to transition to a water sensitive community?
  • How do I benchmark where we are now in that journey?
  • How can I monetise the benefits of water sensitive approaches to demonstrate the economics of blue and green solutions?
  • How can I show that WSUD approaches provide urban cooling to offset urban heat impacts?
  • How can we reimagine the built form of urban infill to contribute water sensitive city outcomes and restore balance in the urban water cycle?
  • What projects are demonstrating innovation in water sensitive urban design at the national scale?

During this session, local practitioners will demonstrate how the following CRCWSC tools have been applied to projects:

  • Water Sensitive Cities (benchmarking) index and transition framework
  • Extreme heat mapping (Microclimate) tool
  • Cost-benefit analysis tool for water related projects
  • Case studies of national exemplars in water sensitive urban design

Join this session to see how CRCWSC research outputs have been translated into a form that practitioners can apply within their roles to bring about the change needed for water sensitive city transitions.
