Australia's Water Resources: From Use to Management (Paperback)John Pigram (author)
Paperback Published: 25/05/2007
- Not available
This revised paperback edition is a fully corrected reprint which has also been updated to take account of the recent appointment of Mr Malcolm Turnbull as Minister for The Environment and Water Resources and the Commonwealth Government's initiative concerning the management of the Murray Darling Basin. "Australia's Water Resources" seeks to explore the circumstances underpinning the profound reorientation of attitudes and relationships to water that has taken place in Australia in recent decades. The changing emphasis from development to management of water resources continues to evolve and is reflected in a series of public policy initiatives directed towards rational, efficient and sustainable use of the nation's water. Australia is now recognised as a pacesetter in water reform. Administrative restructuring, water pricing, water markets and trade, integrated water resources management, and the emergence of the private sector, are features of a more economically sound and environmentally compatible water industry. It is important that these changes are documented and their rationale and effectiveness explained.
