This course explores how water can be used in the planning of cities to improve liveability in the face of climate change and population growth. Participants consider and discuss the latest solutions and concepts on urban design and modelling, climate change adaptation, behaviour change, and social and government engagement. Specifically: the emerging challenges facing our cities, how water sensitive cities can be the driver for more resilient cities, how water can be managed in our cities to improve their liveability, the potential for storm water, urban aquatic systems, and green infrastructure to improve the urban climate, how changes in human behaviour and institutions can complement and assist transitions to water sensitive cities.
