Integrated Water Management

Integrated water management (IWM) offers a way of approaching volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) design situations and challenges in our urban environment, surrounding catchments and landscapes. Learn more about an IWM approach and how IWM principles can be turned into practice and delivered on the ground.

Join us for this one hour lunchtime session on key issues of Integrated Water Management facilitated by Dr. Brian S. McIntosh from the International WaterCentre. The session will explore the general principles and practices of IWM focusing on a series of Victorian case studies. The focus will be on learning from real experiences of translating the general into practice and understanding how leadership can play a key role in enabling IWM solutions to come to life.

Our special guest, Sridevi Patnaikuni, Team Leader Water Futures, Melbourne Water, will be joining Brian to give you an update on IWM Forums Implementation.
