ANUWI Water Conference 2006

5th-6th June 2006

The purpose of this workshop was to bring together ANU researchers and educators to present current water related research and education activities to the ANU community, and to encourage collaborative activities across disciplines.

The event was an internal ANU workshop and all interested ANU people were invited to attend.

  • Day 1: Presentation of water-related education and research activities across campus by a representative from each of the academic areas currently working on water.
  • Day 2: Discussions and debate regarding the future direction of the ANUWI, and identifying opportunities to enable the ANU to enhance its position as a centre of excellence in water-related education and research.

The ANUWI's first "Water Workshop" proved to be highly successful, with researchers and educators from across campus attending over the two days. The presentations given on the first day provided an overview of water-related activities currently undertaken at the ANU enabling those in the water community to become more familiar with the work of colleagues across campus. Speakers came from more than a dozen different areas on campus. The diversity of research areas engaged in water-related activities at the ANU reflects the multifaceted nature of water and its significance in all facets of society.The goal now for the ANUWI is to find ways to integrate research across campus in order to develop a holistic approach to sustainable water resource management.
