Indigenous Water Policy Group Support


The National Water Commission funded the Indigenous Water Policy Group (IWPG) from 2007 until June 2012. Previous to this the IWPG was funded by Land and Water Australia, 2006-07. The IWPG is supported by a Research Advisory Group (RAG) and Policy Engagement Group (PEG).
