CRC for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC), the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA), Water Corporation of Western Australia and New Water Ways would like to invite you to attend a seminar + workshop on a range of health outcomes derived from investments in the transition to sustainable, resilient, productive and liveable cities.

This workshop will take a deep dive into some of the pathways between water sensitive cities and health outcomes, and what the CRCWSC and WSAA have been doing to facilitate this linkage.

This is a free event for WSUD practitioners, policy makers, decision makers, planners and other professionals interested in the health benefits derived from water sensitive cities.

CRCWSC’s Emma Yuen will provide an overview, followed by 3 presentations from:

  • Professor Nigel Tapper on the biophysical aspects of the urban heat mitigation produced from different scales of investment in urban greening;
  • Dr Sayed Iftekhar on estimating the economic benefits of urban heat mitigation;
  • Gayathri Jasper on WSAA’s “Health benefits from water centric liveable communities” report and how WSAA is supporting the water industry in the liveability of our communities.

The workshop will also include two sessions for group discussions.

A light lunch and detailed agenda will be provided on arrival.
