Abstract

Water policy and its implementation have generated much conflict during the last decade. Where once ‘powerful interests could do deals with politicians in smoke-filled rooms’, participation is now demanded by regional stakeholders. Fair processes are a prerequisite for resolution of conflict and for innovation in finding options and solutions (social learning). It is proposed that criteria are developed for achievement of interactive, procedural and distributive justice so that decisions are defensible when audited. The progress in water sharing in the Murrumbidgee Valley is presented as a case study.
