Research Fellow for Water Sensitive Cities, Monash Sustainable Development Institute, Monash University

Dr Paul Satur is an early career environmental and social science researcher and practitioner with the Centre for Water Sensitive Cities as part of the Monash Sustainable Development Institute. His role is to provide the research, training and influence necessary to support the ongoing transitions of urban and semi-urban communities to sustainable, liveable, productive and resilient water sensitive futures.

Paul has had extensive experience with the Water Sensitive Cities approach, having recently completed a doctoral thesis entitled Social Inequality and Water Sensitive Cities in Australia, within the School of Social Sciences (Monash University) and the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC).

Paul continues to work effectively in spaces that present complex socio-institutional and socio-ecological challenges for the continued development of sustainable systems. He has recently established the Our Future Cities Program, which has sought to foster a community of practice, build capacities and promote opportunities for diverse voices to help shape the future sustainability, liveability and resilience outcomes of our cities.
