Ipswich has been selected to be part of a national project to develop the first-ever Australian guidelines on nature-based solutions for flood mitigation and resilience.

This project builds on the extensive floodplain management work undertaken by council in the Ipswich Integrated Catchment Plan, which identified a strong case for nature-based solutions.

The ANU Institute for Climate, Energy and Disaster Solutions (ICEDS) are partnering with council and the Ipswich community on this project focused on the Bremer catchment.

Together we will further examine innovative and practical nature-based solutions to reduce the impact of flooding, understand a range of co-benefits, and discover opportunities for implementation.
