Aims:
  • Assess current regulatory frameworks embedded in state primary and secondary legislation as well as other regulatory tools to identify gaps, barriers and overlaps in relation to alternative water sources
  • Identify elements for more comprehensive, coordinated and integrated regulatory frameworks
  • Classify and evaluate mechanisms for assessing, allocating, sharing and distributing risks associated with alternative water sources
  • Develop a new model for risk assessment and risk diversification
Outcomes:
  • Reviews of existing regulatory arrangements
  • Better co-ordination and integration of sectoral regulation and legislation
  • A useful new model for assessing and allocating future risks
  • Provide principles and tools for aligning our legislative, administrative, regulatory and institutional arrangements with the goal of water sensitive cities, and reducing institutional and practice barriers to innovation

Regulatory Frameworks for Water Sensitive Cities

This project is part of the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities and seeks to understand the relationship between government regulatory practices and other attempts to achieve behavior change for increased water sensitivity.

It will assess barriers to the adoption of new urban water technologies and alternative water sources arising from gaps, inconsistencies and constraints in regulatory frameworks including state legislation as well as key institutional practices.
