International view of managing water resources

1 JANUARY 2003

Scientists and administrators from India are visiting the Border this week to investigate how Australia is managing the often conflicting uses for limited water resources. Charles Sturt University’s (CSU) Institute for Land, Water and Society is hosting the 14 person group, from Loktak in Manipur state and Chilika, Bhubaneswar, for their three-day visit to CSU in Albury-Wodonga and its surrounding natural and artificial wetlands. ILWS director, Professor Max Finlayson, said, “Indian wetland managers face competing interests for water resources, such as hydro-electricity, irrigation, domestic supply, and the environment, which we are also addressing in the Murray Darling Basin. This is a great opportunity for both countries to learn how we can more effectively manage our water resources for all our users.”
