Blue meets green: A seminar

Victoria is a great place to live, with stunning natural environments, green urban spaces and well-planned cities and towns. How the state manages its water and land plays an important role in enhancing the liveability of urban centres.

In this seminar presented by the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) and the Australian Water Association (AWA), a raft of speakers discuss the Victorian Government’s new Integrated Water Management (IWM) Framework and how it will help local governments and water sector partners to work towards this plan.
