Our best-practice methodology helps clients implement change and safeguard communities.

Our team develops strategies, solutions and action plans to help Australian regions and communities prepare for the future.

We build resilience and capacity to adapt to changing environmental conditions. This includes the impact of extreme weather events, as well as long-term stressors, such as global warming and drought.

We partner with local government, state government and other organisations who are focused on long-term community interests. Together, we make plans to improve the capacity to prepare for, respond to and recover from severe events.

Technical insight for data-driven planning

Extreme weather events and our changing climate already affect lives, communities and infrastructure. Storms, floods and bushfires are occurring more frequently than ever before.

Proactive plans and effective designs can help mitigate these impacts. This begins with a solid understanding of what may happen in the future.

Water Technology brings together a range of technical skills to examine environmental factors and model potential outcomes. This information is considered alongside community expectations to assess strategies and solutions.

We use data-based evidence to understand the risks and prioritise recommendations.
