National Water Grid Investment Framework
The Australian Government has announced changes to the National Water Grid Investment Framework in October 2022 to allow for a broader range of projects to be considered. This includes essential town water supplies in regional and remote communities, as well as increased engagement with First Nations peoples as projects are developed.
The Investment Framework aims to set a clear approach for investment to deliver projects against a range of social, environment and economic outcomes. It has been developed in collaboration with state and territory governments and provides a long term, strategic approach to responsible and respectful investment in water infrastructure.
