Formatted Abstract/Summary
The retrofit of green infrastructure in the urban design of our cities whilst they continue to increase in density provides multifunctional benefits in response and energy, land, food and water supply pressures and future climate change scenarios.

The Urban Water Toolkit was developed to bring together well understood principles and rules of thumb across the sustainable development spectrum to facilitate the selection and application of green infrastructure to the Western Creek catchment.

The Western Creek pilot study quantifies the stormwater benefits, modelling in MUSIC, resulting from the doubling of the population in an inner-city neighbourhood of Brisbane through the integration of green infrastructure and sensitive urban infill.
