Description

In Australia, Singapore and China, the Water Sensitive City (WSC) approach is helping to address these challenges and guide infrastructure investment and city planning towards a more liveable, resilient and sustainable future. The WSC vision is of a city designed on water-friendly principles, that uses holistic water management to create beautiful green and blue urban spaces, and that promotes healthy and prosperous communities. 

The AIC Urban Water research Cluster, led by Monash University, Institut Pertanian Bogor and Universitas Indonesia, recently held workshops with the communities of Pulo Geulis and Griya Katulampa in Bogor to better understand the different ways these residents interact with water in their daily lives, how they envision their community in the future and how water could contribute to these aspirations.

These ‘community visioning’ workshops were hosted by each community, with residents participating on a voluntary basis and divided into small groups of men, women and youth. Researchers guided each group to explore their aspirations for their community and create a vision for a more liveable and healthy future.
