About this event

Urbanisation is typically associated with detrimental changes in water resources, including modified flow regimes, reduced water quality, increased sediment transport, and degraded ecosystems. The frequency and intensity of water-related hazards, such as floods, droughts and pollution events, can increase with population growth and climate change, and in turn put greater stress on systems for water treatment, stormwater and sewage treatment.

These changes may have knock-on impacts downstream of urban centres. Reversing degradation to water and other natural resources, whilst meeting the increased demand for ecosystem services, requires significant changes in management practices. This meeting explores aspects of managing freshwater, wastewater and stormwater, in and from urban areas, as components of a basin-wide water resource management plan.
