The Australian Water Association South Australian Branch and the Water Industry Alliance recently held the first South Australian Water Policy Dialogue event, with a new conference format. The Dialogue encouraged discussion and outcomes from the delegates who could be fully interactive with key industry leaders and policy influencers.
The new and exciting format meant registered delegates had access to all the keynote presentations via video to watch when their time permitted. This meant not just listening to presentations - the Dialogue sessions were fully interactive at the event, allowing delegates to speak directly with key industry influencers.
Three streams were held - research, industry and governance - and all generated lively discussion and good outcomes that were the content for the white paper. Jonathan McKeown, Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Water Association opened the event and the Minister for Water and the River Murray, the Hon. Ian Hunter MLC closed the event and was encouraging of conversation on water policy.
Following on from the Dialogue, a white paper was produced detailing the policy challenges and solutions. This paper was released at the recent launch event hosted by Deloitte.
