Managing Water For Australia. The Social and Institutional Challenges
Indigenous perspectives in water management, reforms and implementation
 
Published in 2007, the book titled 'Managing Water For Australia, The Social and Institutional Challenges' brings together a series of papers that were presented at the conference, Delivering the National Water Initiative: Understanding the social and industry dimensions. The conference was was hosted by Land & Water Australia, the National Water Commission, the Australian National University and the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia in December 2006. The papers therein summarise the existing social sciences research and knowledge and promote further consideration of the implementation needs of the National Water Initiative's agreed water reform agenda.
 
Chapter three, 'Indigenous perspectives in water management, reforms and implementation',  was written by Sue Jackson and Joe Morrison. This papers focuses on Indigenous interests in water and how these interests are construed  with respect to the National Water Initiative. The paper clearly identifies processes that need to be considered when adequately addressing issues of Indigenous access, customary and cultural values, and engagement in the water planning and trading processes. The paper also highlights key issues that may effect how Indigenous people benefit from the National Water Initiative water reform agenda.
