Climate Change and Water

This cluster of work is being developed to explore the impact of climate change in general and of water availability in particular, on sport and recreation. To date, collaboration with the peak body for aquatic centres, Department of Water and associated industry bodies has had broad reaching outcomes including improving the monitoring of water use at aquatic centres resulting massive reductions in water consumption across the industry.
