Rajasthan: the largest state of India by area, dominated by the inhospitable Thar Desert.


9 Senior members from the Ministry of Water Resources in the Government of Rajasthan have visited Australia during October, under the European Union-State Partnership Programme.

The visit also included discussions with public administrators at State and District level and an array of field visits.

The purpose of this Study Programme was to support work in water management through considering:

  • policy and legal issues
  • administrative arrangements
  • up to date technical tools and solutions

Their itinerary included:

  • Canberra: the National Water Commission, Murray-Darling Basin Authority and eWater
  • Albury: Hume Dam and Murray River
  • Shepparton / Tatura: large scale irrigation schemes, Goulburn-Murray Water and Goulburn Weir
  • Adelaide: Lower Lakes, Murray River Mouth, Dept of Primary Industries and Regions SA and Salisbury Aquifer Storage and Recovery Scheme

ICE WaRM received very positive feedback from participants regarding the technical programme, the opportunities to interact with Australian Officials and the quality of the meetings, presentations and the logistical arrangements.

ICE WaRM looking forward to developing further relationships with the Government of Rajasthan.
