Building capacity with regional and rural councils - WSUD & IWM



This paper draws together work carried out by the Clearwater Regional Stormwater Policy Advisor. Regional and rural councils across Victoria have responded on varying levels to the uptake of Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) and Integrated Water Management (IWM). The degree to which councils have progressed can be drawn back to a key set of enablers and barriers that are explored in this paper.

This role commenced in September 2011. The overriding objectives were to build capacity and provide support for rural and regional councils around WSUD and IWM.
