Australia-Netherlands Water Challenge in Brisbane

Students of the University of New South Wales and the University of Wollongong have won this year’s edition of the Australia-Netherlands Water Challenge.

One of the winning entries was the CoastalEngage, a decision making tool that enables local communities to engage in coastal development.

The winners were announced at the Floodplain Management Association National Conference in Brisbane, Australia on 21 May.

The Australia-Netherlands Water Challenge was initiated after the Queensland floods in 2011 to exchange knowledge on floods and droughts between Australia and the Netherlands. Ambitious students and young professionals from across Australia are challenged to contribute their own ideas for a more climate-resilient Australia.

The theme of the third Australia-Netherlands Water Challenge was ‘Let’s talk resilience’.

The winning teams will be doing a unique traineeship over the coming six months, including a 3-week program in the Netherlands and participation in the International Water Week in Amsterdam in November 2015.
