Australian Water Research and Development Coalition

NCEDA collaborated with other Australian water research institutions through membership of the Australian Water Research and Development Coalition. To ensure a cooperative and efficient national approach to water research investment and management, the members of the AWRDC shared information on their respective business models, discussed and agreed core areas of interest, and discussed opportunities for alignment of effort and joint funding initiatives.
