This scope of this first stage will be limited to urban water management and domestic/ non-domestic water efficiency or conservation programmes. This strategic research could also support answers to a range of questions, including:
*What policy and strategy approaches have been most successful in supporting water efficiency?
*What transitions have occurred in water efficiency within the paradigm shift from supply driven to demand driven approaches?
*What is the baseline level of water efficiency being delivered and how is this being monitored and evaluated?
*How has water efficiency been delivered differently geographically?
The outputs from this research project will be discussed at the IWA Efficient/ Benchmarking 2015 conference
