With the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals, a new momentum is emerging around wise water management at the international level. This provides opportunities for Australian businesses and organisations to engage in sharing their knowledge, know-how, insight and foresight with partners in other countries.

During the webinar, Dr Ger Bergkamp made several points that suggest how AWP could support partners to engage with the Asia-Pacific. He highlighted the importance of:

  • gaining market intelligence, for example through market reports;
  • complementary Australian partners working together to present a comprehensive offer;
  • finding local (in-country) partners to operate with; and
  • securing funding in the 3 to 5-year start-up phase of international engagements.

The AWP will consider these points as we look to improve how we support our Australian Partners.
