The Goyder Institute for Water Research [external link]
The Goyder Institute brings together South Australia’s leading water research capabilities, in collaboration with CSIRO, to support the security and management of South Australia’s water supply and contribute to water reform in Australia.
Water for a Healthy Country Flagship
Consistent with Australia’s national interest, we aim to develop science and technologies that improve the social, economic and environmental outcomes from water, and deliver A$3 billion per year in net benefits for Australia by 2030.
This publication provides the latest information on the status of Australia’s water resources and their future prospects, the many values we hold for water, and the potential for using water more effectively to meet the growing demands of cities, farmers, industries, and the environment.
The National Research Flagships Program is one of the largest scientific initiatives ever mounted in Australia. Clusters, which are the main element of the Flagship Collaboration Fund offer opportunities for collaborations in areas of national importance.
Murray-Darling Basin Multiple Benefits Project
CSIRO was commissioned by the Murray-Darling Basin Authority to assess the environmental benefits of returning 2800 GL/year of water to the basin, and place a monetary value on those benefits where possible.
Risk management framework for water resource planning
CSIRO is contributing to the national water agenda through demonstrating how to conduct water resource planning within a risk management framework. The framework incorporates community values and economic and environmental concerns, while meeting national water reform initiatives.
