dc.description.abstractResponding to pressure on the natural and built environments from population growth, the need for safe and secure water to support resilient and liveable communities, and the need to adapt to increased climate risk and vulnerability, many cities around the world have sought new ways to develop, manage, and sustain their urban environments. One such concept is 'water sensitive urban design' (WSUD). WSUD is the integrated design of the urban water cycle, incorporating water supply, wastewater, stormwater and groundwater management, urban design and environmental protection. The focus of this chapter is on the challenges of implementing WSUD, specifically with respect to the stormwater management aspects of WSUD.
