Statistics show that water demand is fast out-stripping supply in most urban areas of Australia.
By 2032, Australia is projected to have an extra five million people, the majority of whom will live in cities and urban areas.
This, coupled with climate change and variable rainfall patterns, is putting ever-increasing pressure on the management of our urban water resources.

This issue is not just about supplying more water, and it is much more than a debate around recycling verses desalination. It is about sustainable urban planning, improving water efficiency, water pricing and regulation, financing the infrastructure, and managing the social and environmental impacts.

The issue is one of total water-cycle management.

IQPC are thrilled to present the inaugural Urban Water Sustainability Conference. This strategic event will provide a platform for key decision-makers from federal, state and local government to engage in current conversation around securing our water future.

This event provides you the opportunity to:
• Learn from the success stories across different states and different levels of government from Western Australia across to Victoria and Queensland
• Gain unique insights into strategies to diversify urban water resources and best practice case studies from Victoria and South Australia
• Hear innovative ways of using water more efficiently and managing demand, as demonstrated by David Wiskar from Wide Bay Water, a global leader in water management
• Discover innovative urban water planning strategies which involve the community and maximise sustainability
