You are invited to contribute to this stimulating workshop, convened by Irrigation Australia (IAL) and supported by International WaterCentre (IWC), at IAL’s Conference and Trade Exhibition 2-6 June 2014.
Design your future in irrigation - integrating standards and training agendas for the 21st century
  • What are the challenges and opportunities faced to achieve a national set of Standards and Codes of Practice for the Australian irrigation industry?
  • Can we bridge technical, management and language divides to achieve sustainability and the flexibility to adapt to the conditions of the future?
  • If so, what action is needed now to underpin a structured and progressive career path for people in the irrigation sector?

Add your voice to this thought-provoking debate between panel and audience members.
