Jumping to the Top: Catalysts for leapfrogging to a water sensitive city

This paper synthesises key insights from the transformative change, sustainable urban water management and leapfrogging literature; defines what leapfrogging to a water sensitive city means; and describes three catalysts that facilitate this transition: trans-disciplinary science, cross sectoral collaboration and innovation experiments.

The paper also introduces a joint Australian-Indonesian research program that develops water sensitive city leapfrogging strategies by translating these catalysts into practice.
