The Melbourne Sewerage Strategy is a 50 year strategy for sewerage management in Melbourne. Identification of potential disruptors that could significantly alter the system is a critical part of the strategy. Consideration was given to global ‘megatrends’ such as climate change, resource scarcity, new technologies and rising inequity. This project scanned futures from a range of sectors including: urban water, cities, agriculture, energy, transport, and communications. Building on existing knowledge, innovative thinking was stimulated through futures methods. During two workshops industry practitioners identified novel future factors, prioritised disruptors and assessed their possible manifestation as risks or opportunities for the system.
