It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our first International WaterCentre Newsletter. Over the past 11 months IWC staff, board and executive have been working hard to develop IWC as a business. We are now launching our website, and this newsletter coincides with its launch.
For those of you not familiar with IWC, we are a joint venture business formed about one year ago through the initiative of the partners: University of Queensland, Griffith University, Monash University, University of Western Australia, International RiverFoundation, Moreton Bay and Catchments Partnership and the Queensland Government.
We are in the business of taking Australia's expertise in whole of water cycle management to organizations in the rest of the World. We do this through Applied Research, Education and Training and Knowledge Services. You will read in this newsletter about some of the projects in which we are involved, both in Australia and overseas.
It is our intention to publish this electronic newsletter quarterly and we look forward to your interest in IWC activities. We will also be listing relevant national and international news from our partners and from further a field.
I would like to thank the board and executive of IWC for their energy and support in developing the centre and the staff of IWC for their hard work in getting us on the road to success.
