This paper briefly comments on the effects on community health because of urban design perspectives leading to flood conditions in central business districts in some major centres. As well as climate change factors, the paper suggests that previous human design intervention and a possible lack of insight, investment and affirmative action are one of the major overall cause for flooding, especially in low-lying inner town and city precincts.
Future papers by the author, who has been intimately involved in water, drought management, sustainable building and farming issues, will comment on a number of aspects concerning the role of the built environment and the farming sector’s impact on sustainability, where water, drought conditions and energy are concerned. However, challenges upon the integrity and distribution of water and its impacts is not limited to these sectors and as such, regularly influence the health and lifestyle of the general population.

Due to the informal nature of his talk, Alec suggested that questions may be asked during his presentation.
Grahame then introduced the title of the evening talk, where he also added some of his own comments, which included a brief Bio of Dr McHarg on this topic area:
Dr Alec McHarg has visited and considered the implications in the design of urban space in cities as diverse as Dubai, Barcelona, Berlin, Paris, Athens and London. Alec proposes and comments on sustainable health and lifestyle strategies; integrated transport and zoning initiatives for citizens who live and work in built environments. This is where a unique and creative of sense of place helps to stimulate spontaneous, socially cohesive and productive connections between inhabitants. Positive healthy outcomes, also help to minimise frailty, and dementia related conditions and promote positive social connectedness.
This brief paper on a summary of Preventative Perspectives on Dementia by Dr McHarg was published in the June (2018) edition of The NSW Shooter Quarterly Review and written with enthusiastic input from Keith Topolski Communications Officer of the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia (SSAA) (NSW) Inc.
