Gaining Institutional Capacity for WSUD
Monday 20 February 2012

Clearwater's first delivery will take place at the 7th International Conference on Water Sensitive Urban Design. Implementing and maintaining WSUD projects requires buy-in from numerous stakeholders within an organisation. Gaining organisational commitment is continually identified by practitioners as one of the key barriers to the uptake of WSUD projects. This one day workshop will provide participants with the skills to assess organisational capacity, build commitment into planning and policy, and engage stakeholders to adopt new initiatives.
