New Regional Manger

22.03.2018 - Posted by Kane Travis
We are pleased to announce that Peter Morison has accepted a job as our new NSW Regional Manager. 

Peter has been involved in the urban water field for two decades and has a strong background in both the physical and social sciences involved in making our cities better places to live. Peter's career history started in NSW local government, environment and catchment authorities in Sydney. He has spent the last 10 years in Melbourne, first completing his PhD in Intergovernmental Management at Monash University, then in various senior positions at Melbourne Water aimed at expanding the practices of catchment management and liveability across the region.

Peter is a major thinker advancing the concepts of liveability and collaborative management, and is involved in several research programs. His new role includes oversight of both our Alluvium Sydney and Newcastle offices as well expanding the breadth of our work in NSW. With such capabilities, Peter will be deeply involved in the growth of our sister companies NCEconomics and Mosaic Insights and the multidisciplinary focus needed to tackle the problems of communities and environment.
We are looking forward to Peter challenging and enhancing our business as we respond to key liveability questions and problems across the nation.

Green infrastructure strategy and urban cooling targets

15.03.2018 - Posted by Kane Travis
A green infrastructure strategy and urban cooling targets were the first items to be tackled by our Mosaic insights Lab last week, and we were very grateful for the insightful and passionate contribution from representatives from DELWP, Parks Vic, CRCWSC, Melbourne Water and other consultants.
Mosaic Insights is a subsidiary business of Alluvium which is led by Neil McCarthy and is focused on social landscapes and liveability in our cities and urban centres. 
The venture is newly formed and we know broadly that we wish to create a business that provides direct and meaningful leadership in the advancement of liveability and sustainability of social landscapes. 
Our Lab sessions help us to understand the big picture issues and to focus our energy in the right places. Our recent lab discussion  certainly reinforced that human health, both physical and mental, is a core driver and perhaps even the crisis catalyst needed to change the way we think and how we plan and invest in infrastructure. 
We are planning on running a number of Labs to connect with the key thinkers and decision makers around Australia over the next two months. We also plan to have a new web page up and running in the next few weeks to better express our vision and purpose

Ayeyarwady Basin – Discussion piece

The Ayeyarwady Basin in Myanmar is vitally important to the country’s stock of natural capital, its economy, and the livelihoods of its people. Recent work by Natural Capital Economics and Alluvium estimated that the aggregate value of six key ecosystem services in the basin (agriculture, transport, fisheries, water supply, biodiversity and ecotourism) is in the range of USD 2.5 to USD 6.9 billion per annum (between 3-9% of total GDP for 2016).
In the attached discussion piece (click on the link below), Alluvium and Natural Capital Economics experts reflect on the potential for environmental flows to be incorporated into basin planning in Myanmar, and key principles that would help to ensure their success.
