About Australian National University
The Australian National University (ANU) is a research-intensive university with global standing specialising in discovery and public policy. The Crawford School of Public Policy (https://crawford.anu.edu.au) and Fenner School of Environment and Society (http://fennerschool.anu.edu.au) are key focal points for research, education and policy engagement on water policy and management in Australia and across the Indo-Pacific region. The College of Asia and the Pacific has the world’s largest number of staff and students working on the region, with a large volume of ANU alumini returning to the Asia-Pacific to assume positions within their home country governments.
Various centres and groups within the Crawford and Fenner Schools, as well as the rest of the ANU, have supported the understanding of key trade-offs between different water uses and have the capacity to share Australian lessons with the Indo-Pacific region. These units include:
- UNESCO Chair in Water Economics and Transboundary Water Governance (http://unescochair.crawford.anu.edu.au)
- Integrated Catchment Assessment and Management (iCAM) Centre (http://fennerschool.anu.edu.au/research/groups/icam-integrate- -catchment-assessment-and-management-centre)
