Urban water cycle as the basis for creating a research agenda for sustainable development


The proposal aims to bring together highly skilled research teams from São Paulo State University (UNESP) and Queensland University of Technology (QUT) to establish a collaborative partnership in the area of urban water cycle management. The urban water cycle refers to the primary characteristics of demand and use patterns of water for residential, commercial and industrial activities, generation of wastewater and export of stormwater from an urban area in the context of its population and land use and urban form characteristics. The complementary research skills and expertise of the two teams will form the basis for developing a comprehensive research agenda to create new knowledge to underpin innovative solutions to challenges facing Brazil and Australia in the areas of urban water management, water pollution and treatment and water conservation and reuse with particular emphasis on urban stormwater management. The research teams will identify knowledge gaps and research needs across the urban water cycle. The research needs identified, will in turn form the basis for creating the envisaged research agenda for collaboration. (AU)
