The Improving Water Information Program Progress Report 2011
This Bureau has made substantial advances in its mission to ensure Australia is better equipped to manage water scarcity, water quality and flood risk through ready access to high quality water information. An overview of progress made in 2011 through the Improving Water Information Program is now available.
The Australian Government's Improving Water Information Program began in July 2007 as a ten-year initiative. It is implemented through a $450 million investment led by the Bureau of Meteorology and supported by water agencies across Australia.
2011 was a year of many achievements and a comprehensive, reliable and up-to-date picture of Australia's water resources is emerging.
The report describes our progress towards the Program's ten objectives and answering fundamental questions about Australia's water resources.
