The issue of water availability within our cities and in regional areas has been highlighted by the prolonged drought through the first decade of the 21st century and the recent floods in Eastern Australia have further reinforced the ongoing and increasing variability of our climate. There is a need to strike a balance that recognises the demands to supply water for municipal purposes, to produce food and fibre and to support viable and diverse ecological systems. This balance has brought water issues to the front of regional and national agendas, the equitable resolution of water allocation remains a topic of often passionate debate.
The past 50 years have seen major changes to the institutional and governance structure, increased focus on sustainability, the emergence of reliable new technologies, more holistic approaches that consider water cycle management, consideration of alternate management practices and the need to develop novel skill sets within the water sector. It is reasonable to assume that these developments will further evolve and that a further series of changes will occur.
In addition to the exhibition, a series of workshops
will be held within the main Ozwater ’12 program
. Workshops will be participatory in nature and outcome oriented.
