BasinGuide: A Guide to River Basin Planning

BasinGuide is a practical reference for undertaking river basin planning based on Australia’s experience in managing water scarcity. This guide presents seven iterative stages for managing water resources by collaboratively establishing plans and governance arrangements to distribute water resources, resolve water disputes, improve water quality, meet energy needs, mitigate floods and adapt to climate change.

BasinGuide is intended to be used at a range of levels of government, from Ministerial to officers designing and implementing policy, as well as at provincial, regional, state and national levels. This guide is also intended to support non-government organisations, community, and stakeholder groups who are integral to achieving successful river basin planning outcomes.
