News & Policy >
  • An increasing aspect of AWA’s role as Australia’s leading water sector body is promoting the views of our members before decision-makers, including public representatives, opinionleaders, government agencies, the media and other key stakeholders.


    For an Association whose membership is as diverse as AWA, the promotion of members’ views presents some unique challenges.

    We remain keen, nevertheless, to build knowledge and provide insights to support  sound and evidence-based decision making to water sector professionals and to the Australian community generally.

    Consequently, we have put increasing emphasis on policy development and advocacy in order to make a positive and meaningful contribution to national discussions about water.


    Enhanced activity in the area of policy and advocacy will position AWA as the organisation to which one naturally turns to obtain considered, innovative and evidence-based comment on critical issues.
