The climate is changing and so are we. This Position seeks to outline the contributions of the urban water industry to meeting the challenges of climate change. 


Australia and New Zealand will continue to experience ongoing changes to climate including more variable rainfall, more heat extremes and more frequent and intense storms. The urban water industry is uniquely positioned to mitigate our impact on our climate, respond and adapt to the impacts of a changing climate on the delivery of our services, and improve the resilience of our communities and the environment in adapting to a changing climate.
