The program provided participants with an insight into Australia’s approach to sustainable water resource management.
Participants studied integrated water management concepts in theory and practice in the context of river health management. They had an opportunity to explore ways in which diverse disciplines may inform the practice of integrated water management, and discussed how this learning could assist them as professionals making decisions or providing advice to decision-makers.
The programs provided an opportunity for participants to broaden their knowledge of integrated water management while pursuing particular areas of interest and expertise through individual work plans, field trips and industry placements.
