Australian Water Project - Additional chapters

As part of the release of Volume 2 in the Australian Water Project, a water reform agenda, CEDA is also releasing three additional chapters, commissioned as part of the Australian Water Project. Volume 2 in the Australian Water Project was released in October 2012.

These additional chapters, covering environmental water allocations, groundwater management and urban water pricing, provide further analysis of key issues identified.

Volume 1 in the Australian Water Project, Crisis and Opportunity: Lessons of Australian Water Reform, was released in November 2011.

Volume 1 provided a comprehensive analysis of environmental, economic, agricultural and technological water management issues.

Australian Water Project

The Australian Water Project is a joint collaboration between CEDA, Harvard and Uniwater (a joint venture between Melbourne University and Monash University).

In addition a series of workshops were held in Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne during the early part of 2012 to engage water policy experts, including the authors, CEDA's Water Panel and CEDA Trustees.
