ICE WaRM has welcomed our first of four Australia Awards Fellowship groups for 2018, to Australia. Arriving from the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana in India, the group of 14 water professionals are here to better understand Australia’s irrigation technologies.
While gender inequality continues to be a major issue in India, ICE WaRM is extremely pleased that five of the water professionals in the group are women.
The United Nations General Assembly has proclaimed the decade, 2018-2028, as the International Decade for Action ‘Water for Sustainable Development’.
ICE WaRM, represented by Executive Sector Specialist, Andrew Johnson, attended the 3rd Asia-Pacific Water Summit (APWS), held in Yangon, Myanmar on 11-12 December 2017, which aimed to promote cooperation and partnership, as well as share knowledge and experiences to resolve future challenges in water sufficiency for sustainable development.
Looking back on 2017, I am delighted at the quality and range of domestic and international water capacity development programmes that ICE WaRM has delivered. It is a wonderful testament to the hard work of our staff and partners who have created these opportunities for our alumni and the outcomes for the institutions we support.
Over the last few months ICE WaRM has been working collaboratively with South Australia’s Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR), to deliver two round table discussions that will help reform the State’s Water Register functionality.
