Strategic updates from the Water Leaders Group 2023 meetings

The focus of the Water Leaders Group (WLG) is to seek recommendations from members as sector and stakeholder representatives to inform how we can collectively contribute to implementation of the river basin management plans.

Key WLG recommendations for implementation of the river basin management plans are:

  • Funding for catchment partnerships, must be multi-year allocations
  • Catchment to coast, source to sea connectivity, need a systems approach
  • Communications, engagement and participation, needs cross-sector coordination.
