Social research to improve groundwater governance: Literature review

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report (public)

    Abstract

    Australia relies heavily on groundwater resources that account for over 30% of the water consumed in Australia. Groundwater is crucial to the survival of irrigated agriculture, other industries, urban areas, and to ecosystem functioning in many parts of Australia. Yet groundwater management and governance remains an understudied topic by comparison with surface water. In an attempt to redress this imbalance, the Australian government supported establishment of the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training (NCGRT).
