Australian Partners

International Centre for Excellence in Water Resource Management (ICE WaRM)

ICE WaRM provides a gateway for international access to Australia’s expertise in education, capacity building and research to support sustainable water resources management, with a particular focus on water scarcity. We bring together partners from government, utilities, private and educational sectors to deliver tailored capacity building, demonstration and awareness programs to improve water security for all including the environment.

We engage with like-minded philanthropic and private sector actors through our water resources management Trust which has a tax deductible public fund.

Our present priorities for further research and development include water energy and food security, promoting gender equity in water management and water security for remote communities.
