Abstract

This paper presents a comparative socio-technical discourse analysis of WUSD for Melbourne and Copenhagen. Despite Melbourne appearing to have progressed further, the technology pathways are very similar, suggesting significant potential for transfer of insights and policy mechanisms. However, there are some fundamental differences in the underpinning ontology of WUSD policy makers and pratitioners, which provides more nuanced insights into how best to apapt the knowledge transfer process.
