Jointly developed by the Australian and state and territory governments, 2017
The National Water Initiative (NWI) is Australia’s blueprint for water reform, with governments across Australia agreeing on actions to achieve a cohesive approach for managing, planning, pricing and trading Australia’s water resources.
Increasing demands and impacts on groundwater call for a nationally coordinated approach to better understand, manage and secure Australia’s groundwater systems. This Framework provides a strategic ten year vision, within the NWI context, focusing on three priority objectives where action is required to sustain our groundwater resources and enable ongoing access to this increasingly valuable water resource.
