This paper reviews recent research undertaken to extend the integrated Supply-Demand Planning (iSDP) model, a tool developed by the Institute for Sustainable Futures, UTS, and the CSIRO together with water utilities across Australia. The research seeks to provide a transparent, open-source tool to assist urban water resource planners nationally. This paper reviews the role of the model and details several novel developments. These include an integrated analysis of wastewater, energy, nutrient and greenhouse gas flows, facility for testing alternative scenarios, a series of outputs for assessing the impact of alternative strategies, and an embedded library of region-specific assumptions and references.
