  • We believe that effective water leadership will involve the development of T-shaped professionals.
    By this we mean that as well as possessing deep specialist disciplinary or functional knowledge (which can be imagined as an ‘I’), such professionals will need to have a broad knowledge of other disciplines, organisational functions and the institutions in which they operate (which can be imagined as the cross bar on a ‘T’) to be able to meaningfully co-construct and resolve wicked problems. Effective water policy and management organisations will then need to be composed of mixtures of I-shaped professionals providing deep, technical and specialist skills, with T-shaped professionals providing integration across functions and disciplines.

  • Australia is the driest inhabited continent on earth. It is a country whose water resources are highly susceptible to changes in temperature and the hydrological regime.
    The Australian water industry is globally respected for its knowledge and technical capability in a diverse range of water management practices, and Australian research efforts are increasingly recognising the importance of integrating different disciplines for more effective water policy.
  • The IWC Alumni Network is a global community of practice that promotes and supports integrated water management (IWM).
    IWC Alumni Network already has more than 400 members and growing!
