Presenter:  Lindsey Beck, LindseyB Consulting and SME partner of the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities

The Water Sensitive City is articulated by many organisations in Perth as the aspirational target or vision for the future. But how do you know when you’ve gotten there? Or how far you have to go? Or what actions will take you there the fastest?

The CRC for Water Sensitive Cities recently spent two years developing and testing a Water Sensitive Cities Index which allows organizations to benchmark their current performance, prioritize actions for improvement, set targets and track progress towards their goals. Developed in close collaboration with industry partners, this Index provides the first practical framework for organizing teams, prioritizing investment, and informing actionable steps for water sensitive city transitions.

This talk will outline the role of benchmarking in operationalising a vision, using the Index as an example. Moving from the conceptual to the practical, the Index is a valuable tool for understanding the local expression of the water sensitive city and moving tangibly towards it
