CRC for Water Sensitive Cities

Water is integral to almost every feature of the urban landscape, and an enabler of more productive, liveable, sustainable and resilient cities. As the climate changes and cities grow, urban communities are calling for vision, action and collaboration to create a more secure and sustainable water future.

For nine years, Monash has been a major partner with industry, research and government entities in the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC), which translated interdisciplinary research into practical tools and guidelines, and used these to build the skills of the sector to create water sensitive cities. A new partnership, Water Sensitive Cities Australia, has now been formed to continue this work.
