ICLEI Water Campaign
The Water Campaign, Australia
Timeframe: 2001 - ongoing
Coordinator: ICLEI Oceania
The ICLEI’s Water Campaign is an international freshwater management program which aims to build the capacity of local government to reduce water consumption and improve local water quality.
ICLEI's Water Campaign is designed to assist local governments in their efforts to manage water in a sustainable way. The Campaign provides a framework that encourages the development of local water action plans to achieve tangible improvements in local water quality, conservation and access. Participants in the campaign work towards achieving holistic integrated water resources management.
The Water Campaign™ is an ICLEI Oceania program delivered in collaboration with the Australian Government, the Government of Western Australia, City West Water, South East Water, Yarra Valley Water, Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board, South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management Board and the Northern and Yorke Natural Resources Management Board.
There are now 113 Australian councils participating in the Water Campaign™.
The case studies and milestone materials of the Water Campaign™ are accessible for councillors and staff from participating ICLEI Oceania campaigns and programs. The Campaign news is available at the website of the ICLEI Oceania.
