Water Sensitive SA Business Plan – 2017-18
As Water Sensitive SA enters its fourth year of providing training and resources for practitioners to advance the uptake of water sensitive urban design (WSUD) practices, we will build upon the recommendations within the 2014-15 to 2016-17 three-year review of the program (the program review) undertaken during February to May 2017 to focus our efforts upon greatest needs. Strategic partnerships, have enabled greater resources within the 2017-18 program to be directed to the integration of WSUD performance based policy within the planning system and research translation to provide the evidence base for further investment in WSUD.
