International water management research centre

Water efficiency, food security and environmental sustainability will be the focus of a new joint research centre between Australia and China, officially launched in Beijing last week.

The Australia-China Joint Research Centre for River Basin Management, led by the University of Melbourne, will provide both countries with a new capacity to address national priorities for water resources management.

This includes water catchment management, water productivity, environmental and rural community sustainability as well as technical and research capacity in these areas.

Professor Peter Scales, Deputy Dean of the Melbourne School of Engineering, said that the centre will involve expertise from across Australia, including the CSIRO, the Murray-Darling Basin Authority and the University of Western Sydney.

In China, the Centre will be supported by ten partners, including the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Ministry for Water Resources and Tsinghua University.
