Aims:
  • Identify target behaviours that will assist in the transition to water sensitive scenarios
  • Identify and apply tools to prioritise and sequence identified behaviours
  • Test the relative efficacy of individual and collective interventions design to influence prioritized target behaviours
Outcomes:
  • Behavior assessment database documenting behaviours as assessed against prioritization criteria
  • Sequenced behavioural road map for transitioning to water-sensitivity and policy advice on individual and collective interventions to influence prioritized behaviours
  • Greater understanding about relationships between individual water sensitive behaviours as well as how to use these relationships to influence transitions from one to another

Behaviour Change for Water Sensitive Cities

This project is part of the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities and seeks to accelerate transitions to Water Sensitive Cities by influencing behavior.

This project focuses on household behavior that affects water consumption, quality and run off as an important part of the solution to the issues of drought, flooding and pollution.

Specifically, it seeks to address the issue that there are manty ways in which householders can act to help address these challenges through the identification, prooritisation and ultimately influence of behaviours that assist in transitioning to greater water sensitivity.
