Demonstrating international recognition of the strengths of water research, policy and implementation in Australia, the World Bank in Washington DC hosted ‘The Australian Water Story’ on January 31 this year. A great strength of this program was Victorian-based companies, government agencies and educational institutions which have never been showcased in Victoria.  In this day-long program, we recreate the presentations made by Victorians at the World Bank. We highlight new collaborations that have followed the World Bank visit and offer exciting opportunities for Victorian water conservation, agriculture and industry.

The event will be closed and summarised by Dr Sharon Nunes, global Vice President, Smarter Cities Strategy & Solutions of IBM. Dr Nunes will also give a public lecture at 6pm – Click through for details and reservations for the lecture ‘The Role of IT in Sustaining the World’s Water Resources‘.
