Webinar: Water for Liveable and Resilient Cities
Building water sensitive cities to improve liveability and cope with climate change and population growth.
For the first time in history more than 50% of the world's population live in cities. This creates complex planning and urban design challenges if we want to ensure the protection and health of watercourses and wetlands, mitigate flood risks and create water efficient public spaces. Find out what the City of Salisbury is doing and how they are engaging their community to understand the value of water use in this space, through the Watershed Art Prize.
