Event overview

The water sector is undergoing a period of transformative change, where water users' expectations of their water services are getting higher.

Water consumption is increasing with the lifting of water restrictions and average bills are rising. Balancing the social, economic and environmental dividends of water use is increasingly necessary in order to achieve the most efficient allocation and distribution of resources.

Against this backdrop, this event will discuss:

  • How we can better integrate water use and consumption in our city planning processes and across portfolios;
  • What we understand 'environmental water' to be? What qualitative and quantitative mechanisms should be employed to understand sustainable outcomes?
  • How we understand the relationship between urban water service provision, population and energy?

This event, the second event in CEDA's 2013 Victorian Water series, will continue to bring robust discussion and debate on the role of water in our society, economy and environment.
