Save the date – Goyder Institute Water Forum 2017
The Environmental Water theme focuses on developing a detailed understanding of the ecosystems of our major water resources including the River Murray and the wetland systems in the South East of South Australia.
These systems contain several RAMSAR wetlands of international importance which require a robust integrated management approach to maintain the environmental values of these regions while also achieving social and economic outcomes.
The Goyder Institute has demonstrated the value and effectiveness of its collaborative research approach by quickly responding to urgent and time-critical opportunities such as the 2010 floods and the consultation and review processes of the Murray Darling Basin Plan development.
Goyder Institute advice underpinned the South Australian Government’s successful negotiation of the Basin Plan resulting in $1.77 billion in additional funding to return 3200 GL of water to the environment, and to remove constraints that impede delivery of that water.
This research has produced a series of reports, publications and research materials:
