1 Overview of CRC for Water Sensitive Cities

2 The value proposition The output of our CRC will guide capital investments of more than $100 Billion by the Australian water sector and more than $550 Billion of private sector investment in urban development over the next 15 years.

3 A National Challenge Australian governments have made the creation of liveable, sustainable and productive cities a national priority and identified reform of urban water systems as a key goal.

4 3. Future Technologies will focus on the use of multiple water sources integrated at a range of scales to support context- specific fit-for-purpose uses. Taking the perspective of cities as urban metabolisms this research will develop tools and techniques to manage urban resource flows, minimise waste streams and recover energy, nutrients and other valuable materials. 2. Water Sensitive Urbanism will focus on improving the sustainability and liveability in urban environments. It will apply a new paradigm in urban planning and design that captures the many aspects of urban water management including water security, flood protection, climate-responsive design, terrestrial and aquatic ecological landscapes, and productive landscapes. 1. Society will focus on understanding and delivering the social transformations needed to support water sensitive cities, including community attitude and behavioural change, planning & development practices, economic valuation, institutional and urban water governance reform. 4. Adoption Pathways aims to develop an enduring partnership between government, industry, the water sector, and the community that is informed by the evidence drawn from our research that is freely available, scientifically-rigorous, and open to public examination and comment. Research Programs Society Water Sensitive Urbanism Future Technologies Adoption Pathways

5 Outputs Communication Progressive annual Blueprint summarising the outcomes to date A national industry alliance supporting information exchange across partners Knowledge and influence Industry capacity building programs and demonstration sites to provide ‘know-how’. Demonstrations in incubator cities of Melb, Bris, Perth, Singapore, Rotterdam. A portfolio of education programs. Technical guidelines, decision frameworks, risk assessment frameworks Policy recommendations and ‘science-policy partnerships’ linking policy to the research Resources Modelling software that introduces scenario based approaches as well a combining social and technical elements of urban water management Toolkits to guide system optimisation, ecology, energy recovery, liveability, urban planning and distributed water servicing optioneering Designs of intelligent systems
