This Vision and Transition Strategy defines a vision of a water sensitive future for Greater Perth, WA, and outlines the broad steps the city should take to enable a transition towards this future. It is the outcome of the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities research program, which considered Perth’s water system from a number of perspectives, including the ways in which water has shaped the development of Perth and how water system services are delivered today. The report presents a vision for how water services might be delivered in the future and a pathway for transitioning from the present to the aspired future city. Together, these elements set out a broad scope of action for coordinating and steering the transition and for guiding Perth’s urban water, planning, environment and development sectors.
