In Australia and internationally, ISF partners with water utilities, government agencies, businesses, civil society, donors and development banks to create innovative solutions for water resources management and water service delivery. With deep contextual knowledge and extensive networks in both Australian and Indo-Pacific water sectors, we are uniquely positioned to share relevant expertise from the Australian industry to alleviate poverty and contribute to economic development outcomes in the region.

Our partnership approach is core to our success, and we work within the industry to develop systems and organisational capacities for learning through knowledge sharing.

ISF has conducted strategic water sector planning in Australia and internationally including: risk and resilience assessment; demand forecasting; real options assessment; developing water efficiency strategies; decision support tools; and drought response strategies. In Indo-Pacific countries we engage with national and local governments, water users and the private sector to develop effective policies, regulations, incentive structures and industry/business models for sustainable, equitable water and sanitation services. We work in urban and rural contexts including addressing affordability and water quality needs, and competing demands between irrigation and other users.
