Water infrastructure in a changing climate

River and wall

How do we make Victoria's water supply more sustainable and meet future water demand?

Our expert panel discusses how climate change is affecting Victoria’s water supply and infrastructure needs. 

The panel talks about how to manage increased demand for water as Victoria’s population grows and our natural water supply declines. This includes: 

  • using alternative water sources like stormwater and recycled water 
  • changing how we design water infrastructure to respond to future challenges.
