Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,
Welcome to our special update from the Clearwater team!
We are excited to announce the upcoming delivery of Integrated Water Management (IWM) capacity building to Regional Victoria, thanks to the 2 year funding received from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.
This joint initiative aims to increase participation and uptake of IWM practices in regional Victoria by engaging with local government, water corporations and catchment management authorities (CMAs) particularly. It directly contributes to the Victorian Government's recently launched plan for water management - Water for Victoria; in particular Chapter 5, where IWM is a key feature in developing resilient and liveable Victorian cities and towns.
To kick start our regional initiative and support emerging IWM leaders, we are offering 3 x full scholarships to regional participants to undertake the highly esteemed International Water Centre Water Leadership Program. If you think that you or a colleague could benefit from this opportunity, have worked in the water sector for at least 3 years and are based in a Victorian regional Council, Water authority or CMA, then apply before 9 November.
So much to communicate and celebrate! We will be raising our glasses at Water Drinks tonight to a highly successful year of building capacity and support for IWM across Victoria.
We also encourage you to forward this announcement to other stakeholders you think might get value from our ongoing correspondence and invite them to sign up to receive our newsletter and industry updates.
