The Book Water Futures explores the complexity of building resilience to the impacts of floods and droughts in the landscapes and communities of the Brisbane River catchments. As a framework to consider the options the authors have provide a rich visual array on how to appreciate what the options are. In this introduction to the elements of the Book, consider the various images as a way to build a Vision that can guide how a livable and water smart future can be achieved in South East Queensland.
