Does Australia have enough water?

April 3, 2019

Water is a hot topic in our currently drought affected country. Do we have enough water? How do we balance the needs of both agriculture and the environment? How can we better use the water we have?

Professor Richard Kingsford, Director of the Centre for Ecosystem Science at the University of NSW, is an ecologist who has worked extensively across the wetlands and rivers of Australia. Kendi Burness-Cowan talks with Richard about what we’re getting right and what we can learn from our current situation and overseas.
