The Australian Water Partnership (AWP) offers a unique opportunity to bring together the Australian development and water sectors under a long-term strategic engagement framework. By sharing its experiences from three decades of water reform, and from learning to manage water as a scarce economic good, Australia can help international partners to develop a better understanding of their sustainable water resource base, implement robust basin-scale planning, enact governance reforms supported by innovative policy and legal frameworks, strengthen institutions and build professional capability, develop water sensitive cities, improve water quality and ecological health, and manage demand and improve water use efficiency, in a variable and drying climate. To manage water resources effectively and equitably in the Indo-Pacific region to support sustainable economic development, improve water security for all, and reduce environmental and social impacts and regional tensions.

    Last friday, the Irrigation, Water Utilisation & Management Dept held a workshop presenting findings of their hydro-geological field & lab work. Very exciting that the first 16 regular groundwater level monitoring wells are now installed with support from the Korean Government.

    We know from SOBA that Ayeyarwady groundwater recharge is in the order of 27.5 bm3/yr - an immense resource with a huge potential... this new, expanding, monitoring program will complement the book on hydro-geological of the Central Dryzone that Len Drury completed last year with support from Australian Water Partnership and hopefully will provide the basis for the first quantification of sustainable yields in Myanmar.

    The book on the central dryzone, maps and all, is available at the link below:

    A busy world water day for the Ayeyarwady basin.

    Yesterday,
    CSIRO together with eWater , WaterAid & ICEM working with the Advisory Group of the NWRC & DWIR hosted the first stakeholder consultation on the Basin Exploratory Scoping Study (BESS). the study is an integrated assessment process to understand how the Ayeyarwady basin responds to change & a process to identify trade-offs between stakeholders in the basin. This study will be a bridge between SOBA and the future basin masterplan that HIC is developing; and an important safeguard for integrated, inclusive river basin management.

    Then today,
    the BESS team ran a training for HICs Young Water Professionals in SOURCE modelling and approaches for scenario development.

    Congratulations to Tira Foran, Nicky Grigg, Louis Lebel, Penny Dutton, Theint Theint Aye and all the Myanmar specialists and stakeholders who took us one step closer to understanding the bid strategic trade-offs facing water governance in the Ayeyarwady basin. And thanks to the support from the National Water Resources Committee and the Australian Water Partnership to the BESS initiative.
