Monash welcomes Water Sensitive Cities Australia

In June 2021, following nine years of demonstrating new ways to design and deliver urban water services work in practice, the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) returned to Monash as Water Sensitive Cities Australia (WSC Australia). As part of the Monash Sustainable Development Institute'sWater program, WSC Australia is building on the immense legacy of the CRCWSC by mainstreaming the practices, policies and tools that support water sensitive cities.

In 2021, this included further development of the software and training framework for the Water Sensitive Cities Index, a benchmarking tool for mapping a city’s current urban water management performance, to enable it to reach a wider global audience and to spread its impact.
