Australian National Water Commission launches water and climate change report

The Australian National Water Commission today published “Water policy and climate change in Australia”. The report examines interactions between water policies and both climate change mitigation policies and climate change adaptation responses. This is supported by a comprehensive assessment of the interactions between climate change policy and water policy across seven key sectors that supply water, use water or otherwise affect water policy (urban water, rural water, the environment, agriculture, electricity generation, forestry and mining). The report makes a number of findings and identifies priorities for water reform.

Frontier (Australia) was the main author and led the consortium that prepared this report for the National Water Commission.
