Water and catchment planning, NSW

National Water Commission and NSW Office of Water

We explored ways of improving integration of water allocation and catchment planning, in collaboration with Mark Hamstead and the New South Wales Office of Water.

The report is available at http://archive.nwc.gov.au/library/waterlines/36 and sets out principles for aligning water allocation and catchment plans that can be applied, with some local variations, in any Australian jurisdiction.

A framework was developed and then trialled in the Hunter Region of New South Wales.
