Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (Summer A)

The Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) was established in July 2012 to help change the way we design, build and manage our cities and towns by valuing the contribution water makes to economic development and growth, our quality of life, and the ecosystems of which cities are a part.

The CRCWSC is an Australian research centre that brings together many disciplines, world-renowned subject matter experts, and industry thought leaders who want to revolutionise urban water management in Australia and overseas.

Integrated Research Project 1 (IRP1) Water Sensitive City Visions and Transition Strategies (July 2016 – June 2018) aims to deliver a suite of methods and tools for developing strategic guidance for cities and towns wanting to accelerate and build momentum for the transition towards their envisioned water sensitive future. The project will deliver water sensitive city transition strategies for five case studies across Australia: Perth, Bendigo, Townsville, Sydney, and Adelaide. The strategies will include a benchmark and analysis of the current water system, a shared future water sensitive vision, and strategies for overcoming current barriers and achieving the vision. The transition strategies will be informed by a thorough desktop review of the current system, semi-structured interviews with local stakeholders, and a series of participatory workshops in each case study.

Intern duties may include, but are not limited to:

  • Desktop review of current water-related policies, strategies, regulation, and research
  • Data analysis using CRCWSC tools and methods for benchmarking, visioning and strategy development (guidance provided)
  • Report writing
  • Project team meeting attendance

Recommended Disciplines: Master of Environmental Management and Sustainability
