The 12th International Conference on Urban Drainage (ICUD), without doubt the most important conference in the field of stormwater, was held between September 11 and 16 in Porto Alegre in Brazil. The Centre for Water Sensitive Cities had a strong presence with a group of 26 research staff and students travelling to Brazil. The Centre’s contributions were in both the technical aspects of urban stormwater quality management as well as the social aspects of community receptivity and institutinal reform for integrated urban water management, reinforcing the inter-disciplinary nature of the Centre. All conference papers presented at the conference are available below.

We would also like to commend Briony Ferguson, a PhD student in the School of Geography and Environmental Science, for being nominated as one of three finalists for the Paul Harremoës award for Best Urban Drainage Paper by a Young Author (read more). The award went to  Nuno Eduardo da Cruz Simões from Imperial College (UK) and University of Coimbra (Portugal).
