Submission to Productivity Commission National Water Reform – Issues Paper

 
NELA welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Productivity Commission’s Issues Paper in its Inquiry into National Water Reform. Given NELA’s broad membership base, representing a range of perspectives on water management, our submission focusses on the outcome of water reforms to date, and priority issues that we consider should be addressed to improve water management outcomes and the integration of water policy into broader resource management and planning frameworks.
