Delivering the National Water Initiative: the emergence of innovative legal doctrine

Fisher, Douglas E. (2007) Delivering the National Water Initiative: the emergence of innovative legal doctrine. In Hussey, Karen & Dovers, Stephen (Eds.) Managing water for Australia : the social and institutional challenges. CSIRO Publishing, Collingwood, Vic., pp. 113-126.

Abstract

Australian water policy and management are undergoing rapid and immense change in response to drought, technological advances, climate change and demographic and economic shifts. The National Water Initiative and the 2007 Australian Government water policy statements propose a fundamental shift in how Australians will use and manage water in the future.

The implementation of the national water policy presents many challenges – the creation of water rights and markets, comprehensive water planning, new legislative settings, community participation in water management, linking urban and rural water management, and more. Managing Water for Australia brings together leading social sciences researchers and practitioners to identify the major challenges in achieving sustainable water management, to consolidate current knowledge, and to explore knowledge gaps in and opportunities for furthering water reform.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
