ABSTRACT

This paper examines how a range of leadership development initiatives can be used to assist the transition from traditional to more sustainable forms of water management in Australia. It also examines the role of water educators in this process. The paper seeks to build awareness of the importance of leadership capacity in driving change, highlights opportunities to build this capacity amongst several different stakeholder groups, and describes common methods. It also profiles some recent leadership development initiatives in the Australian water sector. It concludes by suggesting some practical steps educators and other practitioners in the water sector can take to continue to build this form of institutional capacity.
