This project considers socio-technical challenges in transitioning to a water sensitive city (WSC), and investigates interactions between community values and liveability with a key emphasis on well-being. Social participation and community engagement are key for water governance and management to address social challenges and community needs, however a large number of projects continue to fail due to poor public receptivity. The aim of this project is to develop and examine the broader impact as well as context-specific potential for new forms of innovative social participation to improve water governance and management in transitioning to a WSC.
