Course: Building a business case for water sensitive city projects and programs

An innovative new course will be offered in early 2016 with the aim of building the capacity of urban water professionals to assess the costs and benefits of water sensitive city programs and to influence the processes in getting projects off the ground.

This course is being developed by the IWC in collaboration with researchers from the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) and industry stakeholders, and will build skills and knowledge to successfully develop and gain support for business cases to deliver water sensitive cities projects and programs. The course is an output of the ‘Strengthening Educational Programs to Foster Future Water Sensitive City Leaders’ project from the CRCWSC led by the IWC in collaboration with UNESCO-IHE.

Program participants will learn through an innovative delivery model that blends a short (2 day) intensive face-to-face course followed by a longer period of planned work-based learning (3 months), enabling participants to learn by doing in the context of their own projects.

Who should apply?

While applicable to a wide range of professionals this program is targeted at professionals working within local governments, including scientists and engineers, landscape architects, urban planners and designers, and project managers with:

  • at least 3 years of experience in the urban water sector
  • a role in developing and delivering water sensitive or integrated water management projects and programs
  • a desire to improve their capacity to generate change in the urban water sector.
