Water Forum

Water Forum

The objectives are to develop a shared understanding of:

  • Relevant water policy, processes for policy formulation, key factors influencing water policy and likely changes, particularly relating to dryland agricultural areas. 
  • The current water resource in the GB catchment, the state of scientific knowledge and likely changes to ground and surface water in the face of prolonged drought and climate change. 
  • Key agencies in the Goulburn Broken catchment that manage the water resource. And, 
  • To identify community concerns and issues on water resources in the catchment and the processes for community input on water management.

The Goulburn Broken CMA acknowledges and respects First Nations people and the deep connection they have with their land and waters.

We acknowledge the Yorta Yorta and Taungurung people and their ancestors/forbears as Traditional Owners of the land and waters in the Goulburn Broken Catchment (and beyond). We value our ongoing partnerships with Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation and Taungurung Land and Waters Council for the health of Country and its people.

We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge and recognise the primacy of Traditional Owners obligations, rights and responsibilities to use and care for their traditional lands and waters.
