THEME 9: RESILIENCE & WATER SECURITY

 

Cities, towns and basins around the world are increasingly facing water security challenges, and severe weather events from droughts to floods.  To confront these issues, take action and build resilience to climate change, there is a need to learn from the experiences of others, transform the ways we work together, and develop new approaches to plan and manage water systems and water resources. 

  • Rapid situation appraisal, options assessment and program design 
  • Emergency and drought-response demand management 
  • Integrating town water solutions within river basin management 
  • Long term, adaptive, integrated planning for water security and drought 
  • Risk identification, monitoring, evaluation performance assessment and review 
  • How to ensure resilience outcomes for all – equity and equality in the pursuit of water security 
  • Adaptive planning 
  • Transforming water systems 
  • Best practices from overseas: what can Australia learn from others? 
  • Communication and public engagement 
  • Water efficiency – from emergency drought response to long-term water security
  • How does Australia compare to other developed countries in terms of water security and innovation potential, are there opportunities to learn from other countries?
  • What are the major water security challenges facing developing countries (i.e. the Pacific) and how are they being addressed?
