Argentine delegation tours inland NSW
1 JANUARY 2003
Charles Sturt University’s (CSU) Institute for Land, Water and Society (ILWS), based at the CSU Wagga Wagga Campus, continues to influence ‘best water management practices’ across the globe. The economics of irrigation systems, climate forecasting and sustainable waste water irrigation and salt management techniques were closely examined by an official delegation of engineers from Argentina during a recent visit to the Riverina. Mr Horacio Diez from the Council of Federal Investment, Mr Juan Cristobal Acuna, Minister of Planning and Public Utilities, and Mr Salomon Lafi, Irrigation and Water Resources Secretary, were guests of CSU and the NSW department of Primary Industries. The party was also briefed on innovative research being undertaken at the EH Graham Centre, an alliance between CSU and the DPI, before touring the olive oil research laboratory and a 100 year old olive grove located at the CSU Wagga Wagga Campus.
