Australia and India have a strong history of collaboration in water research. Water security, policy, technological innovation and sustainability are critical challenges for both countries.

To build on these shared opportunities, ARCH-India supported a series of four workshops for the Australia India Technical Exchange Program in Water and Food Security.

The Australia India Water Centre and the Australia India Institute partnered to deliver these workshops to exchange knowledge and experiences in water resources management. The workshops also provided an opportunity to network and collaborate with those in the water field in the longer-term.  

5 May, Workshop 1: Groundwater sustainability 

12 May, Workshop 2: Soil and water management for food security 

19 May, Workshop 3: Wastewater reuse management and sustainability

These workshops were part of the activities of the Joint Working Group convened under the MOU between the two countries and led by the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment (DAWE) and the Central Water Commission and National Hydrology Project, Ministry of Jal Shakti, Government of India. In addition to DAWE, the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Training also generously supported these workshops.
