Tony Wong is formerly the Chief Executive of the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities in Australia, and currently leads its Think Tank. He pioneered the water sensitive cities approach to integrated urban water management. Wong has advanced new understandings of the relationship between the societal and biophysical dimensions of water security and city waterscapes – enabling solutions to be underpinned by creative design through blending bio-mimicry with engineering and architectural knowledge and practices for delivering sustainable urban water outcomes. He has led a large number of award-winning projects based around the adaptation of nature-based solutions for urban water management.
