Project Description

To manage stormwater in an adaptive way as well as improving the mitigation strategies to cope with the climate change and urbanisation impacts, Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) approaches are becoming popular. Most of the exiting research in this area has been focused on implementation in infill developments or greenfield sites. Thus, significant knowledge gaps exist in the implementation of WSUD approaches within existing urban areas with holistic approaches. This research will investigate the optimal implementation of WSUD approaches in existing urban development.

PhD Thesis underway by Samira Rashetnia.
