An historic national roundtable forum held in Canberra on Wednesday 26 September 2012 discussed future urban water research and development (R&D) needs and ways to improve Australia’s processes for planning and delivering urban water R&D.

Hosted by the National Water Commission and other members of the Australian Water Research and Development Coalition, this Forum was attended by over thirty invited participants representing all levels of government, water authorities, private sector water industry, university researchers, CSIRO, the new Cooperative Research Centre for water sensitive cities and state and national water research organisations.
