The Water Book Foreword by Megan Clark and Andrew Johnson.

This book seeks to provide a bridge from the peer-reviewed scientific literature to a broader audience of society while providing the depth of science that this complex issue demands and deserves.

The chapters cover the status of Australia’s water resources and it future prospects, the many values we hold for water, and how water can be used most effectively to meet the needs of cities, farmers, industries, and the environment. It is important to find a balance between these sometimes conflicting uses and improve their efficiency.

CSIRO is conducting research to help Australia and the world respond to the challenges of providing and sustaining water resources under increasing demand.
