The challenges of climate change on urban water management to be tackled at the 2015 Stormwater Vic Conference

If you are a leader in the stormwater industry, you need to be able to anticipate the future, taking into account changing climates when developing your water management frameworks. Local governments across Victoria are grappling with the challenge of ensuring that these two disciplines work in unison.

The 2015 Stormwater Victoria Conference presents stormwater practitioners with a unique opportunity to discuss in depth the challenges currently being faced by local government and explore practical solutions that will have lasting, long term benefits as we strive for more liveable cities.

With the recent release of the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, there is no doubt that climate change certainly does matter, but it does not appear to be gaining the traction in the Stormwater Industry that might be expected. This Conference will focus on the impacts of climate change and the mitigation measures that will be required to deal with those impacts.

The 2015 Stormwater Victoria Conference will be held from the 5th - 7th May at RACV Cape Schanck Resort on the Mornington Peninsula. This event is Victoria's leading forum for practitioners and decision-makers from the industry, research and government to discuss the key issues affecting the stormwater industry. The theme for the 2015 Stormwater Victoria Conference is 'Climate Change - Does it Matter Anymore?'.
