The 2022 Australasian Aid Conference hosted by the Development Policy Centre - Australian National University, in partnership with The Asia Foundation, will bring together practitioners and researchers working on aid and international development policy from across Australia, the Asia- Pacific and beyond to share insights, promote collaboration, and enrich the research community.  

On Monday 28 November at 2:00pm AEDT, AWP will convene a session to launch a publication titled, ‘Climate Change and Water Security in the Indo-Pacific: Risks, Responses and a framework for Action,’ co-authored by Dr Hemant Ojha (Institute for Study and Development Worldwide) and Professor Nicholas Schofield (Global Future Research).

The session will be followed by a panel discussion on ‘Climate Risk and Water Security in the Indo-Pacific: How should development partners support local responses? and will bring perspectives from the five socioecological zones outlined in the report – mountain towns, dry zones, delta zones, Pacific Islands, and large coastal cities.

International RiverSymposium 

Vienna and online | 27 - 30 November 2022 

Hosted by the International RiverFoundation, the International RiverSymposium provides a platform for river managers, policy developers, scientists, consultants, NGOs and community organisations to share knowledge and innovative ideas on all aspects of river and water management. 

AWP is a workshop sponsor at the event, where we’ll be launching case studies and synopsis on ‘Valuing Water: The Australian Perspective – Lessons from the Murray-Darling Basin’, developed in partnership with the AWP, DFAT and World Bank on November 30th at 8pm AEDT, 11am CET.

Water in the Murray-Darling Basin is examined through the lenses of the economy, the environment and Australia’s First Nations, helping policy makers to improve water-related outcomes in other country contexts. Australia’s largest river system provides valuable lessons that can inform good international practices.
