Water

The past two decades have seen sweeping water reforms throughout the world as individual countries try to cope with growing demands on the resource.  

Demands including: decreasing per capita resources; accelerating urbanisation; increasing land-use changes i.e. resource- extraction; economically damaging natural hazards and pervasive climate variability and change, are impacts all exemplified in the driest inhabited continent on the planet, Australia.

Water resources research in the Fenner School, focuses on providing reliable scientific, sociological and institutional knowledge necessary for robust policy development and the sustainable management, use and conservation of surface and groundwater stocks and their quality in national and international contexts.
