Webinar 2: Policy and Resourcing – click here to register

This two part webinar will look at where NSW sits in the adoption of WSUD stormwater solutions and the barriers and challenges still standing in the way of the transition towards more sustainable practices.

The first webinar will held on Wednesday, 15th July and will focus on the knowledge and practice behind water sensitive urban design. During this webinar, our first panel of industry experts will discuss if NSW has the capacity required for the correct implementation of WSUD measures. Our second panel will discuss if the correct communities of practice have been established and allow collaboration in a manner necessary to deliver improved standards, guidelines and other institutional instruments.

The second webinar will be held on Wednesday, 22nd July 2020 and will focus on the policy and resourcing required for effective WSUD implementation. These panel sessions will delve into the policy framework around WSUD in NSW, and how NSW fund the transition towards more sustainable stormwater management practices.

We aim to gather a large crowd of professionals from diverse backgrounds in stormwater management, waterway protection, policy development and urban planning, to thrash out ideas and ascertain the status-quo (i.e., everyone and anyone with an interest).

These sessions will be interactive allowing attendees to have their say and shape how WSUD needs to progress in NSW. The findings from these seminars will be used to develop a white paper outlining the current status of WSUD adoption in NSW and suggested areas for research and development to further drive sustainable stormwater practices in NSW.
