National Water Initiative

Friday, 25 June 2004

The National Water Initiative (NWI) is Australia's enduring blueprint for water reform.

Through it, governments across Australia have agreed on actions to achieve a more cohesive national approach to the way Australia manages, measures, plans for, prices, and trades water.

The Intergovernmental Agreement on a National Water Initiative was signed at the 25 June 2004 COAG meeting. The Tasmanian Government joined the Agreement in June 2005 and the Western Australia Government joined in April 2006.

Information on the NWI is available on the website of the National Water Commission.
