Feature Article: Australia a leader in dealing with climate variability

Posted on 25 January 2012

We cannot ‘climate proof’ our infrastructure. We can better understand the risks we face and plan for extreme events such as the millennium drought or the Queensland floods. The latter highlighted the importance of understanding the consequences of building in flood prone areas. Having to cope with such variability poses many challenges for our governments. The investment needed is much greater than other countries with more stable and predictable weather patterns. Nick Apostolidis, Global Development Leader at GHD asks how do we build climate resilience into water infrastructure, transportation and energy networks, buildings and communication systems?

NCEDA paper at IDAWorldCongress: Mono/di-ammonium phosphate fertilisers as draw solutions for forward osmosis desalination

Posted on 5 September 2011

Forward osmosis is an emerging and a novel low energy technology for desalination particularly advantageous if the draw solution separation and recovery is not necessary, and one such situation is to desalinate water for irrigation.
