|CWR Presents : Water Accounting has been in development since June 2004 when the States and Commonwealth Governments signed the National Water Initiative.
Recent developments in water accounting include the release of:-
1. the Australian Water Accounting Standard,
2. a draft Water Accounting Assurance Standard for public comment,
3. a Water Accounting Framework for the members of the Minerals Council of Australia,
4. the third iteration of the National Water Account by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and;
5. research into the potential for International adoption of Australia’s water accounting standards.
Research into world trends in water management and reporting show that Australia is leading the world in the development and deployment of water accounting.
Western Australia leads the way in water accounting for groundwater systems.
