Revitalising Informal Settlements and Their Environments (RISE) Program

The Revitalising Informal Settlements and their Environments (RISE) program is utilising water sensitive technology innovation to transform quality of life across urban informal settlements in Indonesia and Fiji.

Working with communities, governments, local leaders and partner institutions, RISE is co-designing location-specific solutions that integrate green infrastructure to strengthen the whole-of-life water and sanitation cycle.

A program-wide reset was undertaken in the midst of the pandemic to ensure continued successful delivery, by bolstering the capacity of local teams to accelerate their capacity to lead and drive research and co-design on the ground.
